     What Does an Initial Consultation Look Like?

    An Initial consultation involves meeting the staff of the SCC and discussing any project ideas that you may have.  The staff of the SCC will likely ask several questions to learn more about your business or organization and about what you hope to accomplish through our services.  We will then propose a plan of how we can support your project.

    How Much Does it Cost?

    Initial consultations with the SCC staff are free of charge.  For follow-up work beyond your initial consultation, the SCC is a fee-for-service entity with rates varying depending on the size and  type of project.  To view a complete list of pricing for our services, see price guide.
