Fellowship of the CAAV entitles the member to use the letters FAAV. It can be achieved by those in professional practice via two routes.
The applicant must
- be a Probationer member of the CAAV
- have passed the Association’s written, practical and oral examinations; and
- be supported by two CAAV members and approved by Council.
This is an exceptional and rarely used route that allows the admission of practising agricultural valuers of outstanding ability whose election is recognised by their Local Association (75% support) and the Council as being desirable to the interests of the Association.
CAAV Fellows must belong to at least one Local Association in the area where they practise.

Applications to become a Fellow should be made to the Secretary of the Local Association to which affiliation is sought. Application Forms are automatically sent to those eligible to become Fellows. The Local Association Secretary will then forward the application (if content is proper) to the Secretary and Adviser. The Secretariat prepares recommendations for Fellowship applications to CAAV Council which meets quarterly. Council has full discretion to reject any application without giving any reason. Application forms are automatically sent to those Probationers who are eligible to become Fellows.
