By joining Freelance Forum you will have access to both giving you opportunities that would be otherwise be available to you working as an independent contractor.

A membership in the Freelance Forum can offer you the following benefits:

Available Jobs and Projects

Freelance Forum offers you a way to let other members become familiar with your work which often results in collaborations on projects that may involve the need for several design disciplines such as photography, web design and writing for example. In addition to collaborating our members often refer work to one another as they get to know each other and feel comfortable referring one of their clients to you.

In addition, our website offers the opportunity for people in the community and online to find you and view your work. Given that you are a member of an organization they see as legitimate prospective clients will feel more comfortable hiring you for a job.

Network and Connect with Peers and Mentors

Working on your own can be somewhat isolating. Belonging to a group such as the Freelance Forum gives you a built-in network of other self-employed professionals in the various design fields who you can reach out to for advice and support and collaboration.

Continuing Education

Freelance Forum holds monthly seminars and workshops on topics that can extend your knowledge in the design world and on growing an maintaining a successful freelance business. We invite speakers from inside our membership as well as including subject matter experts from the community from time to time.
