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

Everyone joins NASMM as a Provisional member. Whether you're in the business planning/start-up phase of your Move Management business or already own an established business, you will join NASMM as a Provisional member.

Provisional membership gives you access to most NASMM member benefits EXCEPT 1) the use of the NASMM logo; 2) a listing on the NASMM consumer Find A Senior Move Manager page; and 3) voting privileges.

  • Once you provide NASMM with all of the requirements for Professional membership, your company will: 1) have access to the NASMM logo, 2) be listed on the NASMM Find A Senior Move Manager page, and 3) be eligible to vote in NASMM elections.

What are the requirements for Full Professional Membership?

  • Upload a copy of your general liability insurance declaration page to your “MyNASMM” member profile.
  • Complete and pass the NASMM Cornerstone Courses. There are four (4) 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 completed by each company owner.
  • Provide a link to a live website highlighting your Move Management Services
