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 varied locations throughout the United States each fall. The Conference provides depreciation professionals a unique opportunity to network with other depreciation professionals and hear leaders in the field of depreciation discuss current trends. Our renowned SDP training ranges from an overview of depreciation basics to life and salvage analysis courses with real-world applications to preparing and defending a depreciation study.
