Industry-specific statistical reports for associations add value for association members:
Highland Group reports are functional for your association members to apply in their businesses. We present the research at Association meetings so members know it is available and understand the value the Association delivers. Highland Group analysts are available to your association members as they have questions about the research. Our research promotes the value of your association to your members.
Raise the profile of your industry:
The Highland Group plans a post-research publicity campaign using research information to enhance the image of the association’s industry. We develop and publish articles for the association about the research, notify the press that new professional information is available, participate in interviews and make presentations for the association.
For associations we have researched:
Industry-specific demand trends
Average operating statements (income and expense).
We have prepared nationwide supply and demand projections for specific industries and we have presented data on a national basis, regionally, and by major market. Emphasis on primary data collection provides large samples and reliable information.
