Independent Computer Consultants Association

Independent Computer Consultants Association

The Independent Computer Consultants Association (ICCA) represents a wide variety of information technology consultants who provide consulting, implementation, support, training, strategic planning, and business analysis services. Member firms are independent, i.e., they will only propose to do work that is within their core competence, and will not be unduly influenced by any vendor or product.

The ICCA, established in 1976 and headquartered in St. Louis, MO, is a not-for-profit trade organization whose primary purpose is to elevate the quality of the computer consulting industry. Member firms believe that ethical conduct, excellent work product, and honest dealing with their clients are the way to succeed in business. Member firms strive to implement elegant solutions that fulfill their client’s need while meeting the dual constraints time and money. ICCA helps its member firms by providing member benefits, services, and local chapters in metropolitan areas where like-minded consultants can meet and learn from each other.

About ICCA

Independent Computer Consultants Association (ICCA) is an international not-for-profit trade association headquartered in Missouri that provides professional development opportunities and business support programs for independent computer consultants. The ICCA consists of chapters across the United States and members worldwide. ICCA is one of six major computer-related associations represented on the Board of Directors of The Institute for the Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP).

ICCA was founded in Missouri in 1976. ICCA was formed with three basic purposes:
* To promote professionalism within the industry;
* To make the business community aware of the products and services available from independent consultants;

Members of the ICCA are computer and software experts who have practical experience with the industry's rapidly changing technology. They use, recommend and install the latest products, and help corporations and individuals utilize the capabilities of the technology they own.

As independent consultants, ICCA members objectively support the best computer or software solutions in all areas of the computer industry, from hardware design to systems integration to employee training. Most have 10 or more years of experience in the computer field and are full-time computer consultants who own their own businesses.

Through national conferences, chapter meetings, and the Internet, members can develop business referral relationships as well as hear top-notch speakers. ICCA offers consultants legislative monitoring along with a variety of member benefits and services.
