Professional Organizations and Publications

Professional Organizations and Resources

Joining a professional organization offers some benefits to its members. Members can attend professional development seminars, conferences, institutes, and/or webinars at reduced rates. Members can network with other professionals in the respected fields. Members have access to print and/or electronic resources that are not available to nonmembers.
