Welcome to TACL! Just as the name implies, we are Phoenix-area independent consultants (many of us sole proprietors) and leaders providing professional business solutions to the business community (B2B). Our goal is to broaden our value to clients by providing targeted referrals or joint offerings and elevate our own expertise as business owners or practice directors. Plus, we recognize the importance of a well-rounded social circle. We are a network of B2B professionals who values problem solving, collaboration, learning, professional development, leveraging collective knowledge and resources, understanding each others' value, giving targeted referrals, and socializing. Together we can tackle anything.

NOTE: Our community relies on a commitment to face-to-face interaction so the expectation is that members will attend at least 1 event within 90 days of joining. If you join, please RSVP to an event upfront and be aware that, at the 90-day mark, your spot will be relinquished for a new member if you have not joined us in person. If you cannot commit to this, please do not join the group. We are looking for serious, relationship-oriented consultants, not those who wish to join for joining's sake.

FAQs (Updated 1/9/15)

Q: What are the requirements for joining?
A: You must be a business-to-business (B2B) trusted advisor, consultant, or business leader. When the group was first formed inn early January, anyone who identified with this description could join; however, it became clear that not everyone truly meets this requirement so a screening process has been implemented as of 1/9/15. The screening process includes verification of your B2B status (both self-reported and via a review of your website) and assessment of your offerings and client base. If you joined TACL prior to 1/9/15, please note that you may be blocked if you do not pass the screening process. There are plenty of Meetups for everyone; we want to serve independent consultants, those who advise businesses in their purchasing decisions, or are in a position to solve business problems based on a solid background of distinct professional skills. Thanks for understanding and respecting the fact that having a distinct and consistent membership allows us to provide maximum value to an intended audience.

Q: My title is "Independent Consultant" or "Consultant" but I represent a consumer product, MLM, network marketing company, etc.; do I meet the membership requirement?
A: No. Members are business-to-business only.

Q: Are there fees associated with this group?
A: Not at this time. There is no membership fee and no charge for the Meet and Greet meetups. As we add programming, there may be separate event fees; these will be noted in the event itself.

Q: In what part of the Valley are you meeting?
A: The Meet and Greets will be held at the Biltmore area/Camelback Corridor. Other events may be held at different parts of the Valley.
