Time for Associations to Trade in Their Past?

boardofdirectorsThis thought-provoking article should make most of us stand up and take notice. As a member of several professional associations and a candidate for President-Elect of SLA, I have been thinking a lot about this topic lately.

Professional associations have provided me with many opportunities to learn and to serve, from being part of a team to a better organizer and delegator to mentor. What I’ve enjoyed most though is the chance to give back to my profession in return for all it has given me — great satisfaction, continuing opportunities to grow my skillset and in turn, move into new professional areas.

Do you belong to a professional association? Why or why not?
