in consideration of and out of consideration for are both used.

Thank you for your consideration in/of/for/to... be, join, make, being, making, joining, giving, etc. I was hoping to find a good resource for the exact rule on this so I would know how to handle all the different possibilities.
What options are correct, or how do we need to re-word this statement?
In general, the "of" and "for" usage also throws me. Can you recommend (other than this great forum, of course!!) a good resource book? Appreciate your help!!

CalifJimNote, however, that in all examples of consideration with to (in this thread so far), the to doesn't go with consideration, it goes with the verb give. Similarly, show consideration for. More than just the one word consideration is needed to determine what word goes best after it.Agree.
