ACE New Zealand members take consulting to the next level. It's a commitment to professionalism in your consulting business and a commitment to growing a stronger sector.

Be the best

We enable our members to set the standard for consultancy skills and professionalism, both now and to ensure the future success of the sector. We know what good looks like, and we have the training, events, resources, and guidance to help our members grow. Our resources include producer statements, contracts, fees guidance, our remuneration report, and more.

Be the voice

We work hard to ensure our members’ voices are valued and trusted. We raise the profile of professional services consulting and build strong and influential relationships with central and local government, key clients, and the public so our members have an influential voice on important issues affecting the sector.

Be prepared

We ensure our members are ready to face the challenges of today and tomorrow and to lead the way for others. We raise awareness among our members of key issues like diversity and inclusion, the future of work, mental wellbeing, and our climate response, and put the right structures, agreements, and guidance in place to enable our members to thrive and lead through these challenges.

Be connected
