New survey asks: What’s the right number of BV credentials?

A current discussion on LinkedIn brought up the recent debate on BV credentialing and the effect of any perceived competition among BV professional organizations. One commentator asked: “Are these calls for a single BV credentialing standard implemented across all organizations; unification of regulatory requirements (IRS, USPAP, DOL, etc.); or perhaps state licensing of business appraisers to ensure quality and standardization?”

One respondent suggested that a survey of BV appraisers might be a telling way, not to belabor any dispute, but to sound out the profession on possible solutions. To that end, please participate in our latest, quick and convenient online poll.  It’s only two questions, and we’ll keep your responses anonymous when analyzing the results for next week’s ’Wire.
