  • We Seek Your Opinions to Help Promote and Improve our Trade Associations.

    Industry Trade Associations /Organizations can have a significant effect on our success. Many are non-profits guided by a devoted group of individuals who are able to offer their time for the benefit of the industry. Some are not. Just take a look at the lists of board members for any good industry association, and you will likely see a virtual “who’s who” of the top minds in the profession. Participation in trade associations / organizations provides many different returns on our investment in time, energy and your company’s money. There are many ways of participating, contributing and benefiting from trade associations including trade journals and magazines, educational opportunities for owners and staff, website and technical information & support, and my favorite … conventions & tradeshows. Some organization are very well managed, some are not. Most will admit that they need some degree of improvement. This is a place to share frank commentary, opinions, questions and suggestions to help make our trade associations / organizations stronger, better and more successful. For the benefit of all please take a few minutes and share your thoughts about the organizations that help guide our industry.
