Consulting Alliance Announces New Membership Levels
Membership in the Consulting Alliance is now open to consultants qualifying as Professional or Associate-level members.
The Professional Member level applies to consultants with several years of successful experience as full-time consultants or extensive consulting experience during previous employment. Applicants must provide positive recommendations from consulting clients. Professional Members are able to participate in Consulting Alliance professional development and business development activities.
The Associate Member level applies to individuals who are new consultants or those aspiring to become consultants in the near future. Applicants must receive positive recommendations from professional references who can attest to their skill in the subject area in which they propose to provide consulting services. The Consulting Alliance will co-develop a customized, self-navigated development program with Associate Members to enable them to meet requirements for the Professional Member level. Associate Members will not be included in Consulting Alliance business development activities until sufficiently skilled to qualify as a Professional Member.
“The Consulting Alliance has traditionally sought to mentor those who are new to the consulting field,” said Consulting Alliance President Clare Monteau. “The new Associate Member level enables us to provide a more structured approach to admitting and nurturing new and aspiring consultants to achieving the Professional Member level.”
The Consulting Alliance is a non-profit association of leading independent consultants with diverse regional and national experience and proven success in solving client challenges. The Alliance is the ideal resource for organizations seeking to hire a consultant with the highest level of professionalism and expertise.
