APC Member Testimonials

Joining APC immediately put me on a ‘team’ with 40+ other consultants from around the U.S. and Canada. I was searching for peer support, professional development and friendship with my peers and found it through APC.

For those of us who approach our work not only as a practitioner, but as a student – committed to learning every day from each other, and our clients – APC affords me an intellectual and practical experience that nourishes my knowledge, and my ability to better serve my clients.

It’s been a wonderful professional experience and a source of great information, learning and friendships.

Independent does not mean going it alone. Whether you are a solo practitioner or small firm, membership in APC brings you the talent pool, wealth of experience and business savvy of high level consultants to augment your skills and practice. Ask any question of colleagues in the APC network through the list serve, in person at Forums or by phone and a ready network of experienced consultants weigh in with counsel and experience. In many ways you have the same benefits of a large firm through APC affiliation.

My company, and for that matter, me, would not be where and who I am without the great APC members I have been honored to know through the years – could not have done it without them!

APC has been an enriching experience through the relationships developed and the professionalism experienced through specialized seminars for nonprofit consulting.

My membership in APC gives me access to colleagues who face the same challenges I do each day. Knowing I have a place to get confidential answers to questions about the business of the business is invaluable.

We get a lot out of the breadth of knowledge of this group as well as their willingness to share new ideas, best practices, and client experiences – all of which makes us more valuable consultants.
