The Emerging Leaders in Valuation Program is an inclusive series of networking events for the next generation of emerging CBV leaders. The Program is run by the profession for the profession. It is a gathering place for the CBV community to foster future leadership. Events in markets across Canada are directed to CBVs and Students under age 40, although all CBVs are welcome.

Emerging Leaders in Valuation is championed by CBV Institute and driven by volunteers. It is led by a dedicated Organizing Committee of CBVs who are early achievers in their valuation careers.
