Week 4: Professional Organizations

Professional organizations offer their members a host of “official” benefits such as access to newsletters and journals, member discounts to various products and services, and diverse resources. But perhaps an even more important benefit of belonging to a professional organization is the chance to establish useful contacts by networking with people in your field who share the same interests and backgrounds. This can happen though seminars, conferences, and conventions.

This week, you will investigate a professional organization of your choosing and explore how it has contributed to enhancing the knowledge base in its field. You will also complete Assignment 3–the first draft of your Mini Literature Review and take on the role of a peer reviewer for your classmates’ Mini Literature Reviews.
