|"United we stand, divided we fall." Small businesses make up the largest block of employers in this country. You, too, can have power and influence if you join your colleagues.
Associations and organizations perform a much needed service for both small and large businesses. We tend to develop a form of tunnel vision when involved in intense projects and often lose sight of "The Big Picture."
The ability to network with peers outside your office walls opens your eyes to the real world and enables you to focus your efforts on important issues.
There is no question that small business benefits from the experiences and expertise of others.
But, big companies also benefit by having their personel interact with others from different corporate cultures.
In addition, a number of these associations offer quite valuable resources and inside information, as well as discount buying and travel services, lobbying efforts and political power.
We feel that these groups most important efforts are in the area of ethics. The internet offers a new and untried arena for business practices that may have long term implications on how your organization is perceived by the public.
Affiliation with certain organizations is one more assurance (though, of course, no guarantee) for your customers that you and your products and services are what you say they are.
