Professional associations are traditionally built on income generated from membership fees, annual conferences, related workshops and seminars, publications, grants, donations and investments. The more income they can generate, the larger their basis for financial and professional support and the more diverse are the offerings for their members.

Even though each professional association has its own unique benefits, most offer the following benefits. 

  • Professional development and education
  • Conferences and seminars
  • Exclusive online resources
  • Networking opportunities
  • Discounted publications

The internet has widened the scope and enabled many associations an unprecedented opportunity to reach members, interested parties and the world at large in ways unthinkable just a few years ago. The most effective associations combine the best features of the internet with the traditional benefits of a responsive and dynamic structure.

The combination of a well-structured, easy to navigate and useful website can enhance the unique stature an association has as an information source and professional collective for their members.

The overriding objective of any association is to enhance communication between and among its members, and become the first point of call for training and services for the professional community. As bandwidth improves and software evolves, associations find they are in a unique position to achieve this objective by offering online resources, training and services to their highly demanding and often sophisticated audience.

Associations are continually seeking lucrative and high quality professional development programs and services that can reach a larger portion of their membership and where members can participate in person or electronically from the comfort of their offices and homes.

Partnerships are emerging where both parties – the association and the provider – benefit. Associations avoid often exorbitant cost of development and receive a lucrative revenue stream, and in return providers have access to a larger potential client base.
