I have the pleasure of working closely with some of the associations that are making real and valuable contributions to the world. Associations are amazing organizations, uniting professionals. They pool expertise and experience for some of America’s and our world’s most valuable businesses and professions. Here are several examples of associations making extraordinary contributions:

  • The American Nurses Association: Healthy Nurse Healthy Nation – improving the health of America’s 3.7 million nurses and through them, America.
  • CFP Board of Standards: The Center for Financial Planning – bringing women and people of color into the financial planning world.
  • American Geophysical Union – The Thriving Earth Exchange – uniting scientists, community leaders, and sponsors to solve local challenges regarding natural resources, climate change, and natural hazards.
  • The American Beverage Association – The Balance Calories Initiative – cutting sugar in the American diet

These are great ways that associations make our people, our country, and our world stronger and healthier.

If you know of others, send them to me!
