Who Can Join San Francisco Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth ("ACG")? 
The SF Chapter is an "approval chapter", which means members must be approved by the Chapter’s Membership Committee. 

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

What is the Process to Join?
• First: All applicants 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 applicant must be determined to be eligible for membership. This determination is the responsibility of the Membership Committee.
• Third: The applicant will submit two verbal or email endorsements from existing ACG members (please reach out to our Chapter if you need help securing these recommendations).
• Fourth: Upon completing the first three steps, the applicant must be voted in by the Membership Committee (approval meetings are held at the end of each month). 
• Fifth: Once an applicant is approved, dues will be charged to the applicant's credit card on file and ACG SF Membership will be activated (currently $595 per year / $395 for YACG Membership).
