Professional associations have been around for more than 200 years. The first association was formed in 1743 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was organized by Benjamin Franklin and is now called the American Philosophical Association. The idea of associations caught on and spread. Today 7 out of 10 adult Americans belong to at least one association, and 25% belong to four or more. The more than 123,000 national, regional, state, and local associations across the country offer every individual and professional a place to belong.
