Supporters: Sponsors, donors, subscribers.

Thank you to those who contribute financially to this organization ( in the USA, a non-profit corporation so donations are tax-deductible)

We greatly appreciate it.

Our Supporters (Friends) and allow for the lifeblood and proper functioning of the ECAO.

Supporters may be Sponsors, Donors or Subscribers.

Sponsors may want to utilize our Consultants as think-tanks for creative imagination in areas requiring creative and convergent thinking at the highest levels. 

We anticipate our very select membership to be international and distributed in many parts of the world.

On the other hand, we may be able to utilize donations for research, for example,  for the development of projects of relevance to higher cognitive functioning and consciousness after our research board reviews appropriate research proposals. This means that even without a specific consultative project, the funds of our Friends would be appropriately utilized.

Of course, too, there are expenses in running the ECAO, and one priority is to ensure that these are paid.

There are various levels of Friends:

Sponsors are generally large corporations or governing bodies, but may be partner organizations or individuals.

There are several levels of sponsorship ranging from Bronze to Platinum.

Sponsors have access to our database and may officially invite  Members or Contributors of ECAO (individuals or groups of individuals) to consult with them.

Financial arrangements are directly negotiated between these two parties (Sponsor and the Member or Contributor).

Donors are listed (as are sponsors) in our special Honored Friends page. Donors again may be  corporations or governing bodies, but may be partner organizations or individuals.  Donors do not have access to our database and may not hire Consultant Members or Contributors.

Subscribers are libraries or organizations who want access to material products such as journals or other publications that ECAO will produce.

 

SUPPORTERS  (also called Friends)   May be  groups or still as contributing individuals. Friends are also expected to interact at the highest ethical level with Consultants, and if in the view of the Reviewing Executive Board this is violated, the Friend will be disciplined or removed from this organization. The decision of the Executive Board is final and may be without cause.

We do not allow Friends who are involved in any activity, criminal or civil, that can bring discredit to our organization. Also as the ECAO is based in the USA, any group banned,  or in any way involved in terror or so listed by the USA, will not be allowed.

It is the responsibility of such organizations to recognize this.

Our consultants have the option to negotiate contracts and to refuse any associations with any Friends.

Sponsors are companies, organizations, governing bodies who donate to this non-profit organization. The sponsor page is public or private at their choice. They have database access and cannot hire members and individual friends for consultations. They may or may not be required to pay any annual fee as they may make a lifetime  sponsorship (again the ethical requirements apply). Sponsorship begins at $6,000 dollars and there are various levels of sponsorship.

Donors are individuals or groups who donate to this non-profit organization. The donor page is public but at their choice, they may not be listed. They do not have database access and cannot hire members and individual friends for consultations. They may or may not be required to pay any annual fee as they may make a lifetime donation (again the ethical requirements apply). Donations begin at $300

Subscribers  are  organizations or groups such as libraries may want to subscribe (i.e. subscribers). This allows them to access the database of members and friends.

Why sponsor the Exceptional Creative Achievement Organization?

YOUR SPECIFIC NEED TO FIND A SUITABLE CONSULTANT

Once could ask why should anyone bother to hire a consultant through ECAO?

You can commonly locate a leading expert on a topic through the Internet.

What you don't know is the following:
1. Ethics.
2. Skills in follow through on tasks.
3. Ability to creatively develop original ideas (based on Members having demonstrable profound creative achievement)
4. Ability to reason logically and at a profoundly exceptional level (based on a 1 in 5000 IQ for Members)
5. Availability  (consultants negotiate their own projects and are free to choose; however, they have indicated availability to consult in cases they deem suitable)
5. Recommendations  (every consultant has at least two references, one specifically attesting to character).
6. Curriculum vitae
7. Niches of expertise.

Imagine you have a project where errors can cost you millions.
Or imagine you're trying to develop an area that has implications for others which could generate millions.
Hiring someone you don't know by just going on the Internet increases your risk.

YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO SOCIETY

The ECAO reflects the availability of some of the best minds today.
This is an opportunity to contribute to humankind but helping to maintain what is in the process of becoming a not for profit organization which hopes to allow the generation of creative achievement for the good of mankind

Acceptance to the Exceptional Creative Achievement Organization (ECAO) is based on  the information provided in the applications of its Consultants or Friends, and recertification, when performed, may be based on  re-credentialing which may include updates of ethicality.

Consequently, the Exceptional Creative Achievement Organization cannot  guarantee the ethical statements, nor the true qualifications of Consultants, no matter how stringent our criteria are compared with other organization. The ECAO will not under any circumstances, commission or omission, be  responsible for any of the information  that was or was not given to the ECAO before or during membership. Whereas audits may have occurred, this may be incomplete. It is the responsibility of the Sponsor to clarify all pertinent information with the consultant during the process of hiring and such contracts are always entirely between the Consultant and the Sponsor. Any negligence or dereliction of duty or damages or poor outcomes or unforeseen, unpredicted consequences are never the responsibility of ECAO. The Sponsor and the Consultant are expected to be fully cognizant of these rules, and to accept them and absolve the ECAO, any officers and staff of ECAO, and their families,  from any such responsibilities.
