CEPA Membership Model

NEW in 2021: Updated CEPA Membership Model

According to Vice President, Scott Snider, “Our purpose is to create significant companies. By helping an owner create a significant company we not only help them today, but we will help them better position themselves for an exit. To help further that goal, this month we will debut many new member-oriented items”.

This year we are introducing our new tiered CEPA Membership Model. We recognize that some advisors are interested in joining a vast community of Certified Exit Planning Advisors with access to a comprehensive Content Portal, but some advisors are interested in actively holding the designation for the methodology alone. We have updated our membership levels to Credentialed and Credentialed Plus.
