If you'd like to join ACG, please complete the New Member Application.  To learn more about the benefits of membership in ACG Philadelphia, please click here to view our membership flyer.

SERVICE PROVIDER Membership Requirements: (includes all who are not corporate or PE buyers or investment bankers).  Membership is tightly controlled and priority is given to private equity firms, corporate acquirers, and investment bankers.  If you are a service professional, you are required to join with a new corporate or private equity member so that our chapter remains in a healthy balance

Why do we have this rule?  Our goal is to keep the chapter in a healthy balance and ensure that advisors are in fact genuine members of the M&A deal community rather than someone who is simply looking to sell to our members and thereby decrease the value of membership and networking through ACG.

How to Join
: Service professionals include any individual who is not a PE investor, corporate acquirer/c-level exec, or investment banker.  If you are a service provider

1) you need to identify a new private equity or corporate member that you are joining with,
complete BOTH your online applications and then email both names to us at
3) we will approve both membership applications at the same time.

Annual membership dues for ACG Philadelphia are $375 per person and all memberships are offered on an individual basis.
