What is ACG and Who Would Benefit from ACG Membership?
• The Association for Corporate Growth ("ACG") is a national organization interested in promoting all aspects of corporate growth with a particular focus on middle market companies.
• ACG is likely to be a good fit for someone that seeks:
o A service organization devoted to helping middle-market companies grow;
o A network of corporate, service and finance executives that are interested in belonging to a group that is much more than just a networking organization;
o A national organization with chapters around the country that sponsors exciting events and that provides online resources including a directory of private equity firms and member networking tools; and
o An organization that offers the opportunity, through service on various committees of the organization, for deeper involvement with professional peers and the related leadership opportunities.
Who Can Join San Francisco Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth ("ACG")?
• The San Francisco Chapter of ACG is an "approval chapter." That means members must be approved by the Chapter’s Membership Committee. To be eligible for membership, a person must be:
o A senior member of his or her firm;
o Be engaged in a line of business that serves the needs of middle-market companies; and
o Employed by a company, or line of business in a company, that does not already have two members in the San Francisco Chapter.
