The Power of (A)
Would it surprise you to know that one in every three Americans is a part of our nation’s vital association and nonprofit community? Whether as an employee, a member, a volunteer or donor, the heart of our industry are people – experts, problem solvers, innovators – members of a robust workforce helping to build a stronger America and world.
While like every other business sector, associations and nonprofits have been impacted by our challenging times, members of the country’s 1.9 million associations and nonprofits remain hard at work addressing the country’s most pressing issues.
- The association industry’s collective power keeps America competitive by committing resources to life-long learning and professional development opportunities.
- Associations impact the global economy through industrial development, product and service innovation and facilitating face-to-face domestic and international business.
- Associations help the nation prepare for the future by working together to develop better ways of doing business, creating new standards of ethics and bringing a collaborative perspective to light for America’s legislative decision makers.
- Associations enrich lives through everyday volunteer efforts that help people overcome daily challenges, citizenship with communities around the globe and by providing specialized expertise to help create legislation that works for America.
Associations and nonprofits at their core include millions of Americans who are the most knowledgeable and passionate about industries, professions and ideas. Across the country, state to state, associations are mobilizing millions to turn change into progress one step at a time.
And, we are accessible. Tap into our motivated and contemporary American resources. Call upon us for expertise, collective points of view, access to opinions, science and research to learn from lessons past and shape the nation that is to come
