Member Benefits

When you become a member of ACG, you join an exclusive group of like-minded middle-market professionals. You join because you believe what we believe — we are better together as a community than we are individually on our own.

Some events are now virtual and others have been rescheduled. Live events will return when we get through the COVID-19 crisis. ACG remains an active and engaged network. We invite members to enjoy ACG's 365 benefits and the power of our network to work together through the COVID-19 crisis.

The ACG membership experience is not driven exclusively by in-person experiences and events. Here are some examples of our current benefits available to members right now:

  • Personalized profile in the ACG member directory, where you can access and find more than 15,000 members
  • Subscription to the print edition of Middle Market Growth, as well as a weekly digest delivered to your email
  • Thought leadership opportunities on local and national levels
  • Education and knowledge sourcing through ACG’s complimentary Middle Market Insights webinar series
  • Career support through ACGJobSource®, a regularly updated job board
  • Experience private capital’s impact on communities throughout the U.S. and track the impact on ACG’s GrowthEconomy.org®
  • Special member rates on programming networking and thought-leadership events (in person and virtually) that occur all year long, not just in the next few months
