Why Should I Join a Professional Association?
Professional associations are service providers. These associations can perform many tasks,such as advocacy, public relations and bulk-buying, more effectively than individuals can otherwise carry out. In return, members pay membership dues and volunteer for association tasks to carry out the needs of the association.
I want to receive accurate and prompt information about the issues I need to know about. Better information means I can make better decisions that affect my career.
I want my professional interests brought effectively to other professionals, key stakeholders and government bodies, the insurance industry, media and any other organisation my colleagues and I encounter in our jobs.
I want an association to actively educate and market to the general public and referring service providers on a regular and consistent basis regarding the scope and benefits of professional in home nanny care, and to counter any negative press that may harm the profession.
By investing in research and building alliances, an association can open new doors for my colleagues and me in building credibility and recognition.
I want high-calibre experts brought locally to association events, so I can learn straight from the master.
