Associations Advance Ohio

Associations Advance Ohio is a collaboration of the Ohio association community to clearly define what all professional and trade association members have in common-a higher standard of ethics, on-going training and education, and a responsibility to actively advocate for the communities they serve within their professions.

The AAO program is designed to illustrate that association membership is the initial stamp of approval for a consumer when they begin the search and selection process for a professional in any field, whether they be physicians, accountants, realtors, educators, insurance agents, funeral directors or any type of business.

AAO supports the belief that Ohioans will benefit by seeking association members in all professions and understanding the difference between a professional service provider, business owner or tradesman who is a member of their state association versus one who has chosen not to participate in association membership.
