How to Join the Consultants ConsortiumCalifornia Green Solutions' marketing strategies are available to California consultants and service providers who meet our definition of "green/sustainable business" professionals.
We have two levels of members: Basic and Senior.
Green is in the News Everywhere......but the reality is that "Green Business" is just sprouting...is sporadic and still takes a lot of prospect education.
We help California businesses find and access your specialized services... and to find the right consultants for their needs.
If you want local, regional, statewide (and even some national) business connections, this is the biz dev program designed to deliver sales and marketing results for your professional services.
Call Carolyn Allen if you have questions about the program.
