The Power of A

Mary Kate Cunningham

In virtually every industry and sector, associations advance workers’ job skills and create new employment opportunities. The Power of A highlights to lawmakers, the media, and other outside audiences how associations improve lives - from creating industry standards of quality and safety, to providing disaster relief, to offering expertise that creates better policy – and so much more. Join this session to hear how The Power of A impacts the meetings profession, and how you can put it to work for you.
