To renew, MVP members must again document compliance, ensuring their ongoing commitment to professionalism, industry knowledge and high performance.
In keeping with the goal to continuously increase program value, NTEA enhanced qualification requirements, effective Jan. 1, 2021, for first-time applicants. Companies renewing MVP status will not need to comply with changes until Jan. 1, 2022.
