Associations Respond to Gustav – And More



The importance of associations is never clearer than when they are acting on their mission. As Acronym reported associations have done just that in responding to Gustav. A quick read of this short list gives one a glimmer of the importance of associations. But a deeper read also shows how very often one act has many effects. For example, The American Red Cross’s Safe and Well website offers a valuable communication tool for any disaster or uncertain time, and The Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants’ three tips are relevant all year long for being financially prepared in emergencies.

Social media is in the game too and thanks to Maddie Grant here’s round-up of how the power of social media is making an impact in connecting people and news.
