P.O.D.s (Professionals Opening Doors)

Professionals Opening Doors

PODs were developed as a way to help ACG Dallas/Ft Worth members better leverage their membership. A POD is a smaller networking group created with the sole purpose of helping members develop relationships and refer business.

How PODs work is simple:

  1. One or two members sponsor the POD, 8 to 10 other members join, and these members meet on a regular basis to build relationships, trade industry intelligence, and share new business leads.
  2. Most PODs meet monthly and stay intact for several years in order to build greater depth & breadth with each member.
  3. PODs are meant to be category exclusive for the members, so each has more depth of reach. (ex. only one Due Diligence professional per POD)


PODs can be industry agnostic, industry exclusive, location specific, or hobby/social fun! 

Current PODs:

Alpha (Industry Agnostic) - Lead: Emily Ackerman

Betta (Industry Agnostic) - Lead: Kent Barner

Gamma (Industry Agnostic) - Lead: Kayla Marsh



Fort Worth (Industry Agnostic/Location Specific): Lead - Courtney Lewis

North Dallas (Industry Agnostic/Location Specific): Lead - Kelly Anderson

Sigma (Industry Agnostic): Lead - TBD

*Note: PODs are restricted to ACG DFW Members only. We continue to grow PODs as requests are received. It may take a month to put together the POD, but it will be worth it!
