Out with the old and in with the new. That is what’s going on at IACVA, which is rebranding itself as IACVS – International Association of Certified Valuation Specialists – the organization’s board has announced. The transition is expected to be completed by the end of 2017 and the new name will better match what the organization represents. Gaining traction is the global professional valuation credential sponsored by IACVS, the ICVS (International Certified Valuation Specialist), which is earned through intensive core training, examination and continuing education on best practices, and has become well recognized and respected. ICVS training has been going on in many areas across the globe.
“This alignment of the organization’s name with the global designation ICVS is long overdue,” says Bill Hanlin, the IACVS president and CEO. “Our members have been suggesting this change for more than two years and they are excited with the board’s decision to rebrand.”
IACVS is a not-for-profit association of professional business valuators with membership spanning more than 50 countries. You can find more information, including the ICVS training schedule, if you click here.
