The National Association of Construction Auditors’ (NACA) (http://www.thenaca.org) inaugural Annual Conference recently held at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Resort in Las Vegas was a huge success. Over 160 attended sessions related to the control environment of construction projects, fraud, government contracting, and ethics; led by recognized training leaders such as Rich Townsend, Denise Cicchella, Jim Wilmot (Wilmot/Sanz Architects) John Croy, Joe Kranz (Turner Construction), Rich von Gersdorff (Dominion Construction), Ron Risner, and John Wisz. Additionally, James D. Ratley, CFE, President of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners was the keynote speaker.
“The high quality of the presentations; the number of attendees, as well as their enthusiastic participation and very positive evaluation comments”, said NACA Chairman & Founder, Brian Felix, “exceeded all our expectations.”
Such comments as: “Best conference I’ve ever attended…can’t wait until next year!” “I have been in construction since the day I left the army in 1967 and have attended many construction conferences. This is the only conference that I have attended with "had to attend" sessions from day one thru day three. I’ll definitely attend the next one.” “I thought it was an excellent conference which covered all areas of construction auditing…Excellent presentations and very worthwhile.” “Fantastic conference…best CPE value in the market.”
The conference was developed embracing the NACA mission to seek out and unite those individuals performing in the fields of construction and risk management, auditing, accounting, public accounting, architecture, and engineering; and be recognized as the authority on construction project controls. “Our vision,” explains Brian 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.”
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.
