Become a leader—not a follower—through your trade group — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
If you participate in an industry trade group or professional association, grab the most exposure. How? Volunteer to chair committees, run special events or initiate new campaigns. By taking on high-visibility roles, you not only expand your skills but also network from a position of strength and authority. That’s better than agreeing to serve as an unpaid member of a working group where you can wind up with time-sapping assignments that don’t earn you any recognition.
