WELCOME TO THE SOCIETY OF DEPRECIATION PROFESSIONALS!!
The Society of Depreciation Professionals (Society or SDP) provides membership,
training and professional certification opportunities to individuals seeking an in-depth understanding of capital recovery through the art of depreciation analysis. The Society
was formed in 1987, in response to a need for objective and accurate estimates of
equipment life, salvage and cost of removal for capital intensive industries.
The SDP recognizes the professional field of depreciation analysis and promotes the
development of practitioners in the field. The Society further serves as a forum for
the collection, exchange and publication of information concerning depreciation, and
sanctions standards of conduct through its code of ethics.
The Society holds its Annual Conference and Training in various locations throughout
the United States each fall. The Conference provides depreciation professionals a
unique opportunity to network with other depreciation professionals and learn from leaders
in the field of depreciation as they discuss current trends. Our renowned SDP training ranges
from an overview of Depreciation Fundamentals to Life and Salvage Analysis courses with
real-world applications to valuable instruction in Preparing and Supporting a Depreciation Study.
