Membership Benefits

  • Visibility. Individual and organizational members develop profiles dedicated to their consulting practice on the ACN website, which attracts approximately 1,200 unique visitors per month. 

  • Real-Time Access to New Projects. We notify members every time a nonprofit organization submits a new RFP or RFI through our channels.

  • Professional Advancement. Members have complimentary access to four professional development programs per year. We design these quarterly events to promote both educational and networking opportunities. With our diverse programming and dedicated time to develop relationships with fellow consultants, your networking just got a little easier.
  • A Far-Reaching Peer Network. Your professional connections are your lifeblood, but this crucial work often falls to the bottom of the to-do list. We can help you with that. Indeed, 84% of ACN members report that they joined ACN to network with other consultants. Your practice is stronger for having a network of colleagues that you can turn to on projects where multiple kinds of expertise is required.

  • ACN Member Badge. Distinguish your consulting business from your competitors, by using the ACN member badge on your email communications, website and company-related materials such as letterhead, catalogs, business cards and advertisements. Let clients and prospects know that you’re a proud member of the Associations of Consultants to Nonprofits (ACN) and that you share our goal of strengthening mission-driven organizations through expertise, education and experience.

ACN Member

"My participation in ACN, as a member – committee participant – board member – and board president, was essential to growing my consultancy practice. Through the professional network I developed by attending ACN events, the skills I learned through ACN educational programs, and the inclusion of my profile in their Online Directory, my referral base grew steadily. I estimate that 90 percent of all referrals I continue to receive emanate from my past and current involvement. My formula for success? Become an active ACN member."
