According to the American Society of Association Executives there are over 147,000 trade and professional associations in America and as many as 1,000 such new groups form each year (the IRS reports a million or more associations of all types). Most of these start small and are likely to remain small to medium-size throughout their lifetime.

With today’s technology, one or two people can run an association with 500 to 1,000 individual members and that association can have a huge impact on public policy and the environment in which the members conduct their business, especially if the executive is focused on opportunities, not paperwork.

This book is designed for the busy executive of one of these entities. It was crafted to be a succinct compilation of nearly 750 fundamental dos and don’ts (in 11 chapters and just over 90 subchapters) for the executive who is running the entire operation as a one or two person office.

It has been pointed out that association management is a great profession for self-motivated individuals who have the skills and ambition to become an executive. This book is for those people, either new to the world of association management or highly experienced. If you are new, this book will help you avoid many mistakes. If you are seasoned, this book might help you crank your expertise up a notch or so.
