Benefits of Membership

The association serves as a clearinghouse for providers of professional services, such as expert witness, forensic accountants, auction houses, document managers, appraisers, and property managers. Members are expected to actively participate in advancing the goals of the association by servicing on committees, contributing information to the brief band and website, and exchanging ideas with other members.

Access to Website

Once a prospective member is accepted, he/she will gain access to the "member's only" section of the website. This includes useful resources such as copies of published and unpublished court decisions relating to receiverships, a brief band, an index of case holdings, forms and checklists, and a forum for the exchange of ideas among members.
