According to the Center for Association Leadership, there are more than 90,000 trade and professional associations in the United States representing millions of members who own or make decisions for businesses in every industry. Association members own and work in local businesses that drive the national economy. They build relationships, develop new ideas and create jobs. In short, they are the engine that drives our national economy. Associations that serve these entrepreneurs can provide valuable benefits that contribute to their growth and success.
Additionally, association operations rely partly or wholly on membership dues and professional fees paid by their members — and collecting those payments involves time-consuming processes like recurring billing reminders, collections and accounting. These organizations must also continually reach out for new members, which involves separate processes and additional employee effort.
