Industry Representation Benefits Billions

American Society of Association Executives supports use of trade shows; so does NAPSA

In 2009 the American Society of Association Executives indicated that there were over 90,000 trade and professional association in the United States. With so many organizations that represent literally billions of people’s interests, you may ask yourself what is the purpose and how can this benefit me? The North American Power Sweeping Association (NAPSA) is the organization representing the power sweeping industry and if your company is not a member, it should be and here’s why.

Associations are organized for a variety of reasons but there is always one commonality. Associations create benefits for the membership and provide opportunities to improve the industry. By providing services that improve the bottom line for its members, the result is growth and stability for the member as well as the industry. These services can include discount programs, education and professional development, information, standards and certification, forums for problem discussion and much more.

An example of a member benefit that NAPSA is bringing to its membership would be the free seminars available at Pavement LIVE. The savings for the individual attending member is approximately $300 each on this one tradeshow alone and NAPSA members will also receive this savings at NPE in Memphis as well!
