The exclusive Gold Audit Membership is available to existing members of the MTVA that are willing to participate in a thorough review process. The Gold Audit process utilizes a gathering of more detailed company information and results in a high level of scrutiny for each applicant. To become a Gold Audit Member, companies must:
Execute a non-disclosure and hold harmless agreement.
Complete the extensive Gold Audit questionnaire and fulfill all the requirements.
Agree to a third party due-diligence inquiry.
Secure law firm testimonials.
This in-depth application and evaluation process may take up to 90 days to complete and confirmation is not guaranteed.
The non-refundable application fee to become a Gold Audit Member of the MTVA is $750 (if you are already a member in good standing and have paid the annual membership fee of $2,500). Application fees are not refundable regardless of the outcome of the evaluation.
If you are applying to become a member of the MTVA and want to pursue the Gold Audit Membership at the same time – the total year one cost is $3,250.
For years 2, 3, 4 and 5 the Gold Audit Member status may be sustained for $250 each year along with a letter certifying no substantive changes or problems have occurred or exist within or to the business since the original application was submitted.
There are category specific requirements that must also be met as part of this process. Only after all requirements are met will an MTVA member be confirmed as a Gold Audit Member of the MTVA. The decision on Gold Audit Membership is final and not subject to appeal or review.
