Apple Consultants Network Benefits

Last updated:

The founder of Watchman Monitoring, Allen Hancock, has a strong appreciation for what the Apple Consultants Network has allowed him to achieve. This article details key benefits of the ACN program, how to make the most of its offerings, and how members can use coupon code ACNMEMBER to get a discount which more than pays for a basic ACN Membership.

Our History with the ACN

In 2000, Allen Hancock started an Apple consulting practice in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. With no other Apple Consultants were in the area, it was difficult to know who to ask when stuck. Being a member of the ACN, and specifically, being a part of its List-Serv, was a key component to a successful practice.

When our beloved Gayle Murphy stepped down as list-mom, Allen Hancock stepped into the role of List Moderator with Chuck Wilcher. The job of moderator has since been spread to other ACN members, and the discussions continue to be helpful and informative.
