First honorees to be announced at SAC meeting in November

BURLINGAME, CA—The Society for the Advancement of Consulting® (SAC), a leading association of global consulting professionals, announced today nominations are now open for its an annual award honoring two consultants who have advanced the profession in the previous year.

The awards will be given to both an emerging consultant and one with an established practice, according to Executive Director Lisa Anderson. “Our organization is expanding rapidly across the world.  We are happy to recognize those individuals who have gone above and beyond to deliver superior client results and contribute to the profession.”

To be eligible, individuals must be independent business consultants who generate most of their income by working directly with clients, and they must be members in good standing of SAC.  Factors that will be considered in evaluating applicants will include degree of client success, innovation, advocacy and growth through association, and resilience.

A committee of six SAC members, representing a variety of consulting specialties and four different countries, will review applications and determine the winners who best meet the established criteria.

“Being a solo practitioner can be a lonely experience,” said SAC Executive Director Linda Popky. “This award will allow those who have truly excelled to get the attention they deserve from the community that supports them.”

The call for nominations will be open from today, March 27 through June 1, 2019. Nomination forms and applications can be found on the SAC website.

The awards will be presented at SAC’s Annual Meeting, to be held in New York City on November 5 and 6, 2019.
