Becoming a VIA Expert Member
To become a VIA Expert Helping Hand, Trusted Advisor or Accredited Expert, begins with the initial membership process, which has four stages: Application, Assessment, Approval and Accreditation. Once a member, there are aspirational levels of development and growth that can lead to the coveted ‘Accredited Member’ level. Throughout, we will invest in the capability and capacity of OD, L&D, HR and Engagement specialists, funded through membership, and assured through on-going performance management processes. Membership allows us to invest in performance development, and also provides a wider community forum that meets regularly to share ideas, discuss OD trends and build alliances on behalf of the customer.
VIA Expert Members have access to a community of training, networking and business development skills. Many of our members lead micro or small businesses, and unless working as part of a large project team, can become isolated or challenged by the need to grow their business and deliver to client need. By applying to become a member of VIA Experts, Associates make a decision to enhance their professionalism, career and sense of belonging in a like-minded community who want to deliver excellence in leadership and OD.
