Got Issues?

Professional associations often use their websites to communicate with their members about current issues (maybe pending legislation).

  • Feature articles about these issues in association publications like newsletters or journals.


  • Calling members to action, persuading them to contact their local or federal representatives.


Professional Associations & Current Trends

Government websites like the Occupational Outlook Handbook provide current information on a wide variety of occupations.

Look for "Contacts for More Info." This infomation includes links to professional associations. These association websites often provide information about trends in the field. Look on association websites for news articles, advocacy issues, publications, etc.
