CBM is dedicated to providing professional education for executive leaders of not-for-profit trade/membership associations.

What Clients Have to Say About Our Not-for-Profit Expertise

I have worked with Julia Lafferty over the years on behalf of two trade associations, most recently on the 2021 Vinyl Institute audit. During the most recent engagement, she and manager Gemma Coronado came across as thoughtful, thorough and professional. They were a pleasure to work with, which is saying something since transitioning to a new auditor can sometimes be a bumpy process. Instead, everything went smoothly. The commitments and approach made in their proposal were followed as well. The Vinyl Institute and I look forward to working with the CBM team in the future. Rick Klein, Principal, R. Klein & Associates

CBM has provided ACEEE with value-added attestation services.  From the start of the audit, the preparedness of the audit team and usefulness of the online documentation tools made the process very smooth.  Julia and her team were very responsive and fieldwork was completed on schedule.  CBM has been very helpful with educating us about future pronouncements that may impact our industry, and keeping in touch with us throughout the year to discuss operations and accounting.  We value CBM’s expertise in the nonprofit industry and appreciate their willingness to partner with us and keep us abreast of changes in our industry, finances, or nonprofit accounting in general.
