The National Association of Construction Auditors (NACA) has announced that two additional NASBA certified CPE credits have been added to the program for no additional cost, and that the early bird pricing for their upcoming Annual Conference will expire on May 31st.

The final program is being finalized, to include sessions related to the control environment of construction projects, fraud, ethics and government contracting; which will be led by recognized training leaders such as Rich Townsend, Denise Cicchella, John Croy, Joe Kranz, and John Wisz. Additionally, James D. Ratley, CFE, President of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners will be the keynote speaker.
“We have had such a response from so many leaders in the industry volunteering to share their vast experience and knowledge,” comments NACA Chairman & Founder, Brian Felix, “that we secured the conference facilities for a full third day, providing our attendees an opportunity to earn up to 20 CPE credits. We decided to maintain our very competitive pricing schedule, so even if attendees miss the early bird deadline, they still may obtain the best value for their training dollars.”

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.
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.
