ASSOCIATIONS: I have been told by quite a few companies that you are not rejoining the National Limousine Association or your local association. In my capacity at LCT, I attend many association meetings monthly and I can’t think of a better use of time. When I worked for a limousine company, I went to our local association meeting every month. I realize everyone needs to look closely and cut back, but this is one expense I just can’t see anyone cutting.
Why be a member of a local association?
• Successful associations foster good working relationships. Members get and give business to each other. When times are good, they share work with each other.
• At monthly meetings, you find out what is happening in the industry.
• You can’t be everywhere. With the eyes and ears of your fellow industry members you can stay on top of the issues that affect you most.
• There’s power in numbers. If you go at a problem alone with your local politicians you only have you and your employees as voting power.
• Local Association meetings provide education
