Why and how you should support your trade association
Getting involved is the best way that you can support your trade association. By getting involved the association programs work for you. They give you avenues to accomplish marketing and networking that you will never have on your own.
People often join associations and do not get involved. Many people prefer to give their financial support to their trade association. The membership dues help with the day to day expenses of running the association. Websites, marketing, resources and personnel all cost money and membership dues, program fees and promotional fees help fund the association so we can continue providing resources to our members and be of benefit to the industry as a whole.
“Networking Volunteerism” is the most effective way to get you in front of your target audience: REALTORS®. By aligning yourself with RESA and participating in chapter events you will gain exposure for your business in the community and meet the professionals that you want to work with. By participating with RESA you will be viewed as a leader in your community and profession. Real Estate agents have been mixing with each other at association meetings for over 70 years and it is now time for stagers to do the same.
Realtors are very involved in their trade associations and marketing groups. They understand the importance of supporting their trade association. RESA chapters are part of your trade association and by joining a chapter you can now speak the same language as the Realtors.
