Did you reply back to said consulting agency with "expense it?"
"As a consulting firm, we would accept a complimentary membership if you guys would be willing to extend one."
I'm pretty sure the moment you read that you did extend one...
I'm still waiting for my invite to the IPVM booze ^H^H^H^H^H training cruise.
...we would accept a complimentary membership if you guys would be willing to extend one.
With jokes like that that one would soon earn a membership.
I hope we are not tarring all consultants with the same brush. :-)
lol, I'm rolling! Who does this person think they are??? I think you should charge him double for being a dork if he decides to sign up!
Apparently they weren't introduced to IPVM by an IPVM member who would have told them that this community is the BEST source of information in the security industry and worth every penny and more.
Any "consultant" who is actually doing thier own specifying and consulting instead of relying on free design work from integrators would be foolish not to sign up as a member!

Speaking as a well fed consultant (seldom does a week go by without at least one Lunch and Learn); I think consultants should pay double! The information I learn from this site better informs my client recommendations. Without this site I would have to rely on manufacturer propaganda and experience; however, surveillance technology moves far too fast to rely on experience alone. Tell the consultant that perhaps he can increase his billable hours if he was better educated by IPVM!
