Why Use Trade Associations?

Nearly every type of business has one or more trade or professional associations to promote its interests and provide a forum to collect and share information. Many collect and publish industry statistics, reports, and other useful data on their websites or through their publications. Try doing a web search for "trade association [your industry]" to see what you can find. Articles often mention trade and industry associations by name that can then be looked up in these sources.
