Our 3-step membership process:

  1. First, review our Standards of Conduct. Submission of your application for membership indicates that you agree to accept our Standards of Conduct.
  2. The application form asks for information about you and your business. Please take the time to fill this out accurately so potential clients can find you in the member directory.
  3. Membership dues must be paid on-line through PayPal. You do not have to establish a PayPal Account to pay by credit card.

Member Directory and Member-to-Member Exchange

The SPC offers members the opportunity to be included in the SPC public member directory which will offer businesses the ability to directly search for consulting assistance using our website. Once you are accepted as a member, you can edit your membership profile to indicate the information you want to share on our website.

Having your own website is not required for participation on the SPC website. Your listing will include a contact link so potential clients may communicate with you.

SPC members are entitled to free consultations and discounted rates offered by other SPC members. Our Member-to-Member exchange is an opportunity to promote your business within the SPC. The exchange is in our Members-Only section and is not viewable by the public.
