“Entering a new industry can be intimidating, especially as a young professional. Joining Association Forum was a wonderful way to learn about the world of associations and meet experts in the field. I may be a new member of Association Forum but I have been welcomed with open arms and know it will be an asset to my career growth.” Olivia Benish, Administrative Coordinator, MFM/BCCA

How Does It Work? It's Simple

  1. Identify the prospective member
  2. Encourage them to join
  3. Have them list your name in the referral field when applying as an association employee or supplier/consultant.
  4. Pat yourself on the back for doing something good today


"My favorite aspect of the Forum is that it provides a valuable platform to connect with friends and colleagues. At each Forum function, I am reminded about the strength of the association community and the camaraderie that exists among members. It truly offers a welcoming environment that has made establishing new relationships fun and engaging." Tyler Eble, Assistant Vice President, Association Development Solutions
