What is the difference between Provisional membership and Full Professional membership?

Everyone joins NASMM as a Provisional member. Whether you are in the business planning/start up phase of your senior move management business or already have an established business, you will join NASMM as a Provisional member.

Provisional membership gives you access to most NASMM member benefits except use of the NASMM Logo, being listed on the NASMM website and voting privileges.

  • Once you provide NASMM with all of the requirements for Professional membership, your company will be listed on the NASMM website and will be eligible to vote in NASMM elections.


What are the requirements for Full Professional Membership?

  • Upload a copy of your insurance declaration page to your “MyNASMM” member profile.
  • Take and pass the NASMM Cornerstone Courses. There are four courses, Safety, Ethics, The Moving Industry 101 and Understanding Contracts and Liability. These online courses are sold as a four-course bundle for $189 and must be purchased and taken by each company owner.
  • Provide a link to a live website highlighting your Move Management Services
