Professional Societies are widely recognized as a means for fast acquisition of professional experience in one’s field of specialization. A good, well-recognized professional society makes a positive addition to one's curriculum vitae. Networking connections made through membership in professional societies can lead to research partnerships, job advancement, lifelong friendships, and personal fulfilment and recognition. It is also an excellent way to learn more about a particular role or sector; for example, limitless interaction with professionals from non-profit or government sectors as well as those from the business sectors related to the profession. You will broaden your exposure beyond boundaries of your existing professional network, and cross paths with people from across your discipline, including leaders with whom you may otherwise not have met.
