About Trade Associations & Organizations

If the information you need is only available for members, consider emailing the organization using your SMU email. Mention that you are a student doing a class project or are interested in that career field.

  • Trade Associations: Often collect data, such as trends, market research, consumer  rankings or regulations, within their field and are considered industry data experts.
  • Professional Organizations: May help build a network within your career field and offer meetings, newsletters, professional training or certifications to keep up with industry trends.
