The Association for Consulting Expertise offers members and non-members an opportunity to network with other professionals, and hear from speakers on current business and community issues that affect our independent businesses. "Roundtable" discussions immediately follow the program, and are an opportunity to both highlight our members’ expertise and learn from our membership on topics that can help build and strengthen our individual practices. View our meeting schedule for more information and directions.
ACE provides periodic webinars on topics of interest to our members as well as virtual roundtables where all can participate in discussions related to growing our practices. Our ACE Connect series highlights members.
Members get an extensive individual profile page on the ACE website where they can describe their practice and background. They can update their ACE member profile information at any time, and include categories in which they wish to be included for possible referrals. Organizations seeking consultants and service providers are able to search the directory for members’ areas of expertise.

Some of them are willing to volunteer their time to advise newer entrepreneurs or service providers who may be stepping into the field or changing their area of focus.
