As the old saying goes, there's strength in numbers!
Throughout history, groups have come together to achieve benefits far greater than anything they'd be able to accomplish by themselves. Think about unions in factories or co-ops in housing communities; each of these elements brings together like-minded individuals so they can enjoy the benefits of a larger presence. In the end, the more people who come together, the more possibilities exist on the other end of the spectrum.
1 . Networking Opportunities
The greatest leaders learn from others. Networking is an essential ingredient for successful businesses, but it's not always easy to gain access to other like-minded professionals. So, where do you start? When you join an association, you're instantly part of a team that's greater than yourself. In this environment, you can bounce ideas off other entrepreneurs, learn what's worked for others, and ask for advice from those who have already been there. Associations are the primary way people can become involved in face-to-face networking with people who share similar professional interests.
2. Community Growth
