"In 2018 I got call out of the blue from a colleague I knew three or four jobs ago that led to a five-month consulting project making the case for reforms to eviction court.  I asked him how he heard about me and he said he recognized my name as soon as he saw it on the list of member communications consultants on the ACN website.  That one project more than paid the cost of my annual membership!
