I've been apart of this forum for awhile now ,and I've been soaking up all the free information my small brain can handle. I've finally decided to make a real business out of this marketing thing . I was just wondering what are some of your views on joining a Marketing Association , such as SEMPO , IAB , eMarketing Association ,DMA . There are also a few others I've been looking at like Performance Marketing Association and Internet Marketing Association. They all seem like grate organizations to join but I just cant seem to choose one . Any one affiliated with some of these organizations/associations ? Are they even worth joining?
