ABV Champion Program 


The Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) Champion Program is an AICPA initiative that offers ABVs the support, structure, and resources to collaborate with state societies to help promote and expand the ABV credential at the state level. The purpose of the program is to inform the professional accounting community about the vital role of business valuation professionals, the knowledge required to become a valuation specialist, and the benefits of the ABV credential. ABV Champions are ABV credential holders who understand the benefits of the ABV credential and play a leadership role in advancing the credential and in encouraging a sense of community amongst ABV credential holders within their state.

Prospective ABV credential holders are encouraged to contact their local ABV Champion for information about the benefits of and path to obtaining the ABV credential.
