Helping Communities Work promotes the diverse socioeconomic contributions of associations through the Power of A. Banking industry stakeholders collaborate with association leaders across other advanced and emerging industries. The process is intended to advance the cross-industry job skills of workers and create new employment and entrepreneurship opportunities. https://www.thepowerofa.org/
As described by ASAE, associations are at the forefront of service innovation and facilitate domestic and international commerce. There is no other segment of society that improves lives like associations, from creating industry standards of quality and safety, to providing disaster relief to offering expertise that creates better policy – and so much more. One-third of all Americans are a part of the association community. At the heart of the association community are people – researchers, innovators, mentors, communicators – whose expertise and hard work collectively create a stronger America and world.
