Many IEEE-USA members have turned to consulting as a way to practice their profession. Many of these members have come together to form local Consultants Networks. IEEE-USA is working to support these members career exploration into the field of self-employed consulting through its Alliance of IEEE Consultants' Networks Coordinating Committee (AICNCC). AICNCC helps local IEEE Consultants' Networks coordinate their activities and provides services to individual consultants in areas lacking sufficient members to start a local network. AICNCC's objectives include fostering the growth of Consultants' Networks in the United States, encouraging consultants to join existing networks or form new ones, promoting the use of independent technical and engineering consultants by industry and business, and providing educational activities for self-employed members. To date over 40 groups of IEEE members have formed local IEEE Consultants’ Networks.
