What it takes to be a member
We’re not like all the others. We’re a selective bunch. Here, the best connect with the best. A typical member:

    Has at least 10 years of overall communications experience, with at least three at a manager level position;
    Comes from all types of organizations: corporate, non-profit, academia, government, health care, associations and consulting (individual practitioner,
     boutique or large firm); 
    Has responsibilities in a high-level role that shape and refine the communications landscape with measureable results; and 
    Will candidly share knowledge and opinions, making membership a genuinely two-way experience. This is perhaps the most important qualification

Our membership ratio of 60% “corporate” members and 40% consultants and vendors provides a rich, diverse mix of seasoned communicators from each professional area.

We're a little different than your typical communications organization. We're senior communications influencers dedicated to sharing knowledge, advancing the profession and helping you and your organization succeed.

We sit solidly at the intersection of ideas and influence.  

Transforming business … one conversation at a time.
As individuals, we define excellence in communications within our respective organizations:
We're like a valued communications mentor, the one who gave you advice no one else would … or could;
We're like a trusted teacher, the one who pushed you beyond what you thought possible;
We believe in magic … backed by a dose of reality from the best minds in the communications business; and
We prefer the human approach in an age where texting passes for building connections. We talk. We exchange. We connect.
