The Society of Professional Consultants is a non-profit, New England-based resource organization for consultants who represent diverse disciplines and work in multiple industries. The Society was established in 1986 by consultants for consultants to create a dynamic peer network.
The network supports the growing community of professionals committed to developing successful independent consulting practices that responded to business community needs.
Achievement of this purpose is accomplished through the concept that members, by helping each other, will help The Society and themselves.
In addition to discount rates at all monthly meetings, workshops and seminars, Society of Professional Consultants members have access to career-building educational, professional and business development resources.
