Meet New ClientsYour Career. Your Community. Your Forum.

As Association Forum celebrates its 100-year anniversary, we’re proud of the collective impact associations make on our society. The associations in the Chicagoland area pump more than $10.3 billion directly into our local economy every year and serve nearly 27 million individual members and 250,000 corporate members.

This impact would not be possible without the contributions of our supplier and consultant members who bring not only goods and services, but also thought leadership and expertise that helps association executives achieve the goals of their organizations.

In addition to sharing information about your company, you’ll also gain a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities association executives face when you take advantage of numerous opportunities to learn alongside your clients and prospects.
