CVBBA Member Benefits

Most Popular Benefit: CVBBA Annual Conference

The four goals of our association, listed on our website and in our By-Laws, are to:

1) Maximize and enhance public awareness of the business transition profession and association members.

2) Promote the professional development of members through educational opportunities and networking.

3) Support an efficient market for the transfer of business ownership.

4) Develop and encourage a code of ethics among its members to set high standards of conduct and professionalism.

All four of these goals are fulfilled each year at the CVBBA Annual Conference. This two-day conference enables our members to enjoy four major benefits:

1) Enhanced Productivity: As with all our conferences, we’ll have special sessions to talk about ways to improve productivity with member benefits such as: Private Equity Info, GoToMeeting, Deal Sense, and discounted IBBA courses. And while talking one-on-one with other members, you’ll learn what others are doing to increase their own productivity and effectiveness.

2) Effective Networking: In addition to meeting other CVBBA members during the breaks between classes, presentations, and association business sessions, a special reception for networking is planned the first evening of the conference. Many members report that networking with other members has been as valuable to their careers as taking professional education classes.

3) Continuing Education: The most cost-effective way to take professional education class is probably right at our annual conference. The association offers IBBA training seminars (at a discounted rate) intended to help seasoned professionals, and the newer members, keep up with the changing times and challenges of our industry. Not only will you learn about specific areas important to growing your business and serving your clients better, but you can also take courses focused toward earning your professional certification.

4) Value: As with all our conferences, we’ll have special sessions to learn about issues impacting our profession (i.e. CVBBA’s role in the recently introduced SEC Licensing legislation), and our association (i.e. IBBA chapter affiliation issues, Code of Ethics, CVBBA Regional Meetings, PowerPoint Presentation for local universities, and our quarterly Newsletter).
