ACG Connections helps you take the “work” out of networking. Based on a series of simple questions, proprietary algorithms work to pair you with a fellow ACG Connections member that matches the criteria you are looking for in an ideal networking connection.
Design the criteria that best suits your networking needs. Choose how often you want to be introduced to someone new and set location parameters. Each new introduction is specifically arranged to meet both members' needs!
ACG Connections is constantly adapting to your preferences and aims to deliver introductions that match your requirements. Each one-on-one introduction is a mutual opportunity to expand your network. After each introduction, help our matching engine learn and improve.
just like you make great introductions. Whether it's helping you discover new business development opportunities, uncover best practices or getting to know new colleagues; we can help!

If the idea of being intelligently introduced to fellow ACG Connections members in a one-on-one setting sounds intriguing, then you’re definitely in the right place! The goal of this community is to help find and meet the most valuable, mutually beneficial and productive members in our organization. Let’s get started...
By accepting your email invitation (or joining using the Get Started link above) you will need to onboard. Onboarding is where the ACG Connections community gets to know you a bit better; we need to understand who you are, but also what you need! The onboarding process only takes a few minutes and gives us our first glimpse into your networking needs.
Fantastic, now that you have completed onboarding, your account is live! You will begin receiving introductions shortly, but in the meantime, you have a choice:
Setup your profile: You can venture into the ACG Connections platform and begin adding information concerning your bio, skills, services and company. You can also explore your Leads Billboard. More on that later!
Or, just wait: You’re busy, we get it. For now, just sit back and relax. Your basic networking profile is adequate and introductions are on the way!
Once you complete the onboarding process, you will start receiving ACG Connections introductions! ACG Connections networking requires NO SEARCHING; our matching algorithm arranges ALL introductions between members.
You will have already selected your introduction frequency during onboarding, i.e., once a month, twice a month or once a week. At ACG Connections we do our best to match you with colleagues who share mutually beneficial values. The intent of every introduction is to provide both members with opportunities to forge real business relationships. Here’s some of the criteria we use to match members.
Once you receive a new introduction, it’s your turn to reach out and get the ball rolling. With each introduction you will receive contact information and the member's summary and company info.
From time to time let us know what you think of your introductions. Feedback is one of our most important means for better understanding what types of ACG Connections members you prefer meeting. It’s also your opportunity to jot down any notes or important reminders when following up later.
In addition to our tailored one-on-one introductions, we offer the Leads Billboard! This is a community wide bulletin board featuring member Needs, Offers, Questions and Updates. ALL members of the ACG Connections can view, message and post to this fantastic biz/dev resource!
Posting a new opportunity to the ACG Connections Leads Billboard is easy! Simply follow these steps:
Respond to a Lead by clicking the Message button at the bottom of the post you are interested in discussing. This will open the ACG Connections private messenger where you can submit a response to that particular member. Allow 2-3 days for a response before following up.
When responding to a Lead, ACG Connections WILL NOT share personal or professional contact information. It is up to you and the Lead owner to exchange contact information if acceptable. More information on the Leads Billboard can be found under our FAQ section, or by visiting our User Support pages.
