Membership Criteria and Application Process

ACGSV Membership Application

ACGSV seeks to maintain a membership balance among Corporate Members, Equity Members and Service Members.

The membership process begins with completing an online application (attending a Chapter event is not required prior to submitting an application; however, it is strongly encouraged).

The ACGSV Membership Committee will review each application and may, at its discretion, request a personal or phone interview with a membership candidate. The Membership Committee will make a determination as to whether each candidate should be recommended for Chapter membership and relay recommendations to the ACGSV Board of Directors for consideration at the next monthly Board meeting.

The Membership Committee and the Board of Directors, at their discretion, may consider the following factors, among others, in the determination of whether to accept or reject a membership application:

  • Current membership composition of the Chapter, per the four member type above
  • The applicant’s business and leadership experience
  • The applicant’s contacts and networks
  • Potential sponsorship interest and capability
  • The applicant’s willingness to participate and contribute to Chapter activities
  • Sponsorship of the membership application by two members of ACG who are not employed by the applicant’s current employer

Membership in ACGSV is selective and not every applicant will be accepted.
