How to Become a Member

This is a registration of interest prior to the application process. After you submit your details, an AESC representative will contact you to discuss the features of AESC membership, your firm's eligibility and the corresponding fees.

Membership Criteria

To be eligible for membership prospective members must:

  • Comply with the AESC Code of Ethics and Professional Practice Guidelines.

Membership Dues

Membership dues are based upon a graduating scale relating to the number of revenue producing consultants.

There is also a one time membership initiation fee of $800 for a firm with an office in one region (Americas or Europe or Asia Pacific), $1400 for a firm with an office in two regions and $2,000 for a firm with an office in all three regions (Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific) and that is applying for an AESC Global Membership.

Membership Application Process

A prospective member firm must:

  • Complete an application form. Information disclosed in the application form is kept confidential with the AESC secretariat.
  • Provide names of 2 references from consultants in different AESC member firms. AESC will contact references to answer a series of questions.
