Help: Find Professional Associations

What does this tool do?

The Find Professional Associations tool provides a list of national professional and industry associations related to the industry or occupation you choose. From the list, you can link to each association's website.

You might find this information helpful to:

  • Develop a network of peers in your occupation or industry.
  • Find professional development opportunities to help you advance your career—or enter a new field.
  • Keep current on changes in your field through conferences and publications.

How do I get started?

Enter the name of an industry, association, or occupation. If you see the industry or occupation title you are looking for pop up below the search box, select it and click "Search." Or type any keyword and click "Search."

What can I do with these results?

Your results page provides a list of all national associations in our database that relate to your search term. Some search terms will generate very long lists. From your results page, you have several options:

  • To narrow your results, use the filters, either related occupations or industries, located to the left on your screen. The number in parentheses after each sub-category indicates the number of associations in that group. Click "More" or "Less" at the bottom of the list to manage the number of results shown.
  • To visit an association's website, click the link in the URL column. A new window will open for the association's website; close that window to return to your results page.
  • To start over with a new search term, click the blue "New Search" button on the top left side of the page.
  • You can download and save your list of professional associations in Excel, PDF, Word, or RTF using the "Download" and "Select Format" buttons at the bottom of your results list.
  • To email or print your results, use the controls at the top right of the page in the header.
