The Value of Membership
When a businessman sincerely evaluates the worth of his association he comes to the full realization that his line of business would be in sorry plight without it. He realizes of course that all too often there are those business firms who do not belong and who do not bear their fair share of the cost and yet reap many of the same benefits that come to the members.
What man could reasonably quarrel with such values as the maintaining of standards of the contracting business at the level necessitated by its quasi-professional character? This leads to the establishing of members in the public mind as businessmen who fulfill their obligations in good faith.
The value of the association is in providing the methods and means whereby members may avail themselves of the greater power of combined effort through its acting as an authoritative body in all matters affecting the industry. The voice of one man in the clamor of modern commerce is but a whisper against the wind, but the voices of five, ten and a hundred can and will he heard.
The value of association membership can’t always be reckoned in dollars and cents, nor is it possible to point to a gain or loss figure of an individual business and say clearly, “This came from association membership,” but sound and competent businessmen all across the entire spread of our economy have been supporting and participating in the affairs of business of trade associations. They, like you, were not careless or wasteful men, but successful and hardheaded businessmen.
You don’t buy a TV set; you buy entertainment. You don’t buy an automobile; you buy transportation. You don’t buy electric light bulbs; you buy illumination. You don’t buy technical books; you buy expert knowledge. You don’t’ buy membership in your association; you buy the teamwork of others in striving for goals which you cannot attain alone and unaided.
