FVS Section, CFF and ABV Membership  

    To support CPA forensic and valuation professionals, AICPA offers three membership programs: the Forensic and Valuation Services (FVS) Section, the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) Credential, and the Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) Credential. Membership in each program entitles members to premium content (as indicated by padlocks  on this Web site), that includes resources, tools, and information needed to help the CPA forensic and valuation professional add value to their firm. The FVS Section is open to all CPAs and to non-CPAs employed in public accounting firms.

    CFF and ABV credential holders, as a benefit of their membership, are also members of the FVS Section and have access to all FVS content and resources.
