Upon signing up, members receive the required forms for the initial vetting. Once the forms are completed and returned to Avent-GuardTM the vetting process takes place. Members then receive a PDF version of the transparency report and their profile is placed in the directory. Every member goes through an annual vetting review process for the life of their membership.
Once a potential member submits their self disclosure questionnaire and authorization they are vetted on a variety of areas to include: business aptitude, reputation, fraud and scam screening, review of key personnel, legal and financial issues (as applicable). Each member receives a PDF version of their transparency report for review before being listed in the directory.
Once members are approved, their logo, description of services, website link, social media and transparency page are all placed on the site as part of their profile.
