For the business valuation profession to flourish, practitioners need to give back to the profession. One way to do this is by volunteering to serve on committees, working groups, task forces, and the like at the various valuation organizations.

New opportunity: The Appraisal Foundation (TAF) is seeking subject matter experts (SMEs) to help develop voluntary guidance on determining the appropriate discount rate on intangible assets, which it has identified as an area that lacks uniformity in practice. The primary issue that will be explored will be how to determine the appropriate discount rate on intangible assets with consideration to market discount rates, deal rates of return, WACC, and other related indicators. The SMEs will work with an assigned liaison from the organization’s Business Valuation Resource Panel.

Completed applications must be submitted by May 15. For an application, click here. If you have any questions, please contact Jalin Debeuneure, engagement coordinator, via e-mail at jalin@appraisalfoundation.org or by calling 202-624-3055.
