The National Association of Construction Auditors (NACA) has announced their inaugural Annual Conference will be held at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Resort in Las Vegas, September 19-21, 2011! The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) certified CPE sessions will include topics related to the control environment of construction projects, fraud, and ethics; led by recognized industry training leaders such as Rich Townsend.
“We are very excited to announce this inaugural event,” comments NACA Chairman & Founder, Brian Felix, “All those involved in controlling capital projects, such as Auditors, Architects, Owners, Owners Representatives, Project Managers, Cost Engineers, and Project Accountants will benefit from the wide range of discussions.”
Thanks to member suggestions and board member due diligence, an outstanding location has been selected and an excellent room rate of only $79 has been negotiated for this event. The 18 CPE program will be very competitively priced as compared to other organizations, including discounts for members, and early & group registrations. Company sponsorships will also be available.
Conference details will be forthcoming and can be found at http://www.thenaca.org.
The National Association of Construction Auditors (NACA) was created to enhance the control environment related to construction projects, by addressing the needs of:
1. those auditors/accountants who spend a significant amount of their efforts auditing and/or controlling construction projects; and
2. Owner construction/facilities management personnel who want to improve their knowledge base of contracts and process controls resulting in their construction projects being better managed and controlled; and
3. Project Managers, construction management personnel, architects, and owners representatives who want to improve their knowledge base of process controls, thereby improving the overall product delivered to their customers.
“Our vision,” explains Mr. Felix “is to bring all the project team members together to exchange knowledge and ideas to improve the overall control environment for the Owners, delivering them greater value. Auditors/accountants can improve by increasing their knowledge of the construction, architecture, and engineering disciplines; while facilities development/management and construction management personnel (Project Managers/Cost Engineers/Project Accountants) can improve their product by increasing their understanding of project cost controls.”
As stated on their website (http://www.thenaca.org), the NACA mission is to unite those individuals and be recognized as the authority on construction project controls by:
- Providing a forum through which the Association’s members can meet to exchange ideas and share insight into each others related area of expertise.
- Providing members with the resources, information, and leadership that enable them to provide valuable services in the highest professional manner to benefit the public as well as employers and clients.
- Developing and coordinating programs dedicated to the purpose of improving professional standards of construction auditors.
- Enhancing the role and promoting the image of the construction auditor and construction control professionals.
- Providing the professional Certified Construction Auditor (CCA) designation to instill confidence in employers and clients when they secure the services of a professional construction auditor.
- Providing the Construction Control Professional (CCP) designation to increase the confidence in customers that they will receive the best value when they secure the services of a contractor/construction manager.
An Advisory Board has been established by the National Association of Construction Auditors to seek out experts in the fields of auditing, construction management, real estate development, architecture, and engineering to help serve the association and its members by providing expert counsel and guidance.
The NACA grants the designation of Certified Construction Auditor (CCA) and Construction Control Professional (CCP) to the individuals with the expertise in these areas. The National Association of Construction Auditors is committed to providing resources, information, and leadership for NACA members, their clients, and the public to ensure the highest standard of construction controls possible.
For a limited period of time, the National Association of Construction Auditors (NACA) is currently accepting applications under the grandfathering provision for the Certified Construction Auditor (CCA) and Construction Control Professional (CCP) designations, setting the standard in these fields (http://www.thenaca.org). The provisions are a point-based system based upon education, training, and experience.
