There are two main areas of benefit – business development and cost savings – with the former being by far the most important.

Business Development 

The CMC accreditation is the key benefit and work is going on locally and globally on its recognition as a quality assurance mechanism.   Accreditations should be referenced in email signatures, and member and practice profiles kept up to date.

Collaboration is another key area where consultants team up to tender for projects beyond their scope in terms of scale or skill base.   This is fostered through the Consultants Network and the online Consulting Guide.  The Client Enquiry Service provides opportunities also and members can use it to issue queries for specific tenders /projects or generally.

Attending network meetings and events helps to form linkages also.  Consultants can run an event for members in an area they have expertise in, which allows us promote this expertise.

Cost Savings 

The areas with potential are set out in the Members Area and the most widely used benefits tend to be the Professional Indemnity insurance, Car / Home / Office insurance and Health insurance advice schemes.  Savings in these areas alone have the potential to outweigh the cost of membership.
