Benefits for Student Members:

  • Extracurricular Activities: When you attend our events, you’ll meet movers and shakers from Chicagoland associations. You can engage in the kind of association networking that will help you meet new people and new opportunities — the kind that you can’t find on campus.
  • Real World Education: Because we value lifelong learning, Association Forum is an ideal classroom for future young professionals. You can enroll in our education courses and learn real skills that will help you land real jobs.
  • Career Planning Resources: If you’re interested in a career in association management, you can use our website to access a wealth of articles and information that will tell you what it’s like to work for associations and what types of jobs are available, as well as how to get one.
  • Job Search Assistance: Our career center has more association job listings nationwide than anywhere else. The job postings are current, diverse and can be perused confidentially. It is the quickest and easiest way to jump-start your job search — whether you’re looking for a summer internship or your first job in the industry.
