Consulting Associations List and Websites

By Michael Zipursky
Just the other day I got another email from a blog reader that is starting a consulting business asking what consulting associations I would recommend. This all depends on your location, what you are looking to get out of it (certification, networking, etc), your budget and so on. So instead of making a recommendation (which I can't because there are just too many variables) here is a list of consulting and related associations you may find helpful.   There are many, many more associations out there. So if you think I missed one that you’d like to see on this list, let us know in the comments below.

  1. David T. Hodgin, CMC says:

    An obvious addition is IMC USA – the Institute of Management Consultants ( and the international version International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI) ( These organizations award the CMC (Certified Mangement Consultant) designation to experienced and qualified consultants which is recognized in some 47 countries around the world and required for high level work in some.

  2. Update: March 2017. The first two associations listed are no longer in operation. From the “What it’s Worth Department.” Cheers!
