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.
The National Association of Construction Auditors’ (NACA) 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 include topics related to the control environment of construction projects, fraud, government contracting, and ethics; led by recognized training leaders such as Rich Townsend, Denise Cicchella, John Croy, Joe Kranz, and John Wisz.

“All those involved in controlling capital projects, such as Auditors, Architects, Owners, Owners Representatives, Project Managers, Cost Engineers, Risk Professionals, and Project Accountants will benefit from this one of a kind event.” Brian Felix remarked.
