The Difference — For Practitioners

Understand the credibility you gain from a professional affiliation and why CANNP stands out in a crowd.

Many wonder about the difference between an alumni or a professional association. An alumni association has a narrow focus, catering to the needs related to a particular school while a professional association deals with broader issues and sets wider parameters. 

A professional association takes advantage of Member numbers because numbers talk! They provide clout and get attention and therefore action. With numbers behind us we approach the government and insurance companies to try to entice and educate. With good numbers we can continually enhance our offerings and benefits that are otherwise hard to come by. The number of members we cater to have allowed us to bring about change to the industry — positive and lasting change.

The industry as a whole has progressed a great from the work of professional associations.
