The Power of A - Stronger by Association

One in every three Americans is a part of our nation's vital association and nonprofit industry. There are nearly 64,000 trade and professional associations in the U.S., representing literally every industry, profession, and interest.

Associations make broad contributions to American life. They are an essential piece of our national, state, and local economies. They create jobs in every state. Their measurable economic benefits include more than 1.3 million jobs for Americans and a total payroll of nearly $51 billion. Beyond their economic impact, associations play a vital role in educating the nation’s workforce, and developing voluntary industry standards to keep families safe. Associations illustrate how America works best when it works together. www.ThePowerOfA.org
