Benefits of Membership
Independent consultants join the Alliance to network with colleagues, grow their business and expand their professional skills. Membership in the Consulting Alliance offers career, business building, educational, professional, and business development opportunities. Members attend Alliance meetings, workshops, and seminars at discounted rates.
If you meet the Alliance’s membership eligibility requirements, you can begin the membership process by completing the Online Application. Please contact our Membership Chair if you have questions.
Completed applications are screened by the membership committee and prospective members are interviewed. After at least three current references have been checked, the committee prepares a profile of the prospective member. This document is sent to all current professional members for a vote.
Guest speakers address timely topics of interest to consultants in the Capital Region. Non-members are welcome at these functions.
Professional Development Meetings
A member or guest speaker focuses on one important consulting skill at these monthly member-only gatherings. Members have recently spoken about consultant marketing, technology tools, and procuring government contracts. Members, especially new members, have the opportunity to present a 10 minute 'member spotlight'.
