To be eligible for membership, a person must be:
-  A senior member of his or her firm;
-  Be engaged in a line of business that serves the needs of middle-market companies; and
-  Employed by a company, or line of business in a company, that does not already have four (4) members in the San Francisco Chapter.

What is the Process to Join?
• First, ALL prospective members MUST register online by clicking here! This is the only way to insure that the Membership Committee has the information it needs to start the approval process. 
• Second, the prospective member must be determined to be eligible for membership. This determination is the responsibility of the Membership Committee.
• Third, prospective members need to attend at least ONE (1) ACG event (the Annual M&A Conference counts as two events).
• Fourth, the prospective member needs two letters of recommendations from existing ACG members (one must be from a member of the Board of Directors or the Membership Committee).
