The Society of Professional Consultants

Networking, Mentoring, and Education for Consultants and Solo Professionals

The Society of Professional Consultants (SPC) is a professional development organization for independent consultants, solo professionals, and entrepreneurs. We offer networking, mentoring, and education for our members. The SPC facilitates virtual networking and workshops for both new and experienced consultants from around the world. Our membership is limited to solo consultants and business owners.

The Society for the Advancement of Consulting (SAC) has closed effective January 1, 2024. The SPC is continuing SAC’s mission of Growth by Association. We’ve created an expanded community where you can share best practices and gain new insights with professional consultants from around the world.

We encourage our members to collaborate, share best practices, and learn from each other. The SPC is not a referral network and we don't require our members to refer business to each other.

The SPC welcomes and encourages participation in our community by consultants of all ages, backgrounds, and identities. We are committed to promoting and sustaining a culture that values mutual respect, tolerance, and learning. Our standards of conduct page has more information about our policies and member responsibilities.
