PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Paul Bishop, CAE

 

Thankful for our Association Family!

At our quarterly meeting I shared how the Association world is incredibly unique and diverse. Most of us are fortunate to work for an organization with a mission we can believe in and dedicate our work lives to achieving. Associations have a unique role in our society of providing a voice to those who may not be heard along with educational components and resources that are otherwise not provided by the private and government sectors. At our core associations and association employees are relational. We depend upon relationships to support our organizations, but also to support us as individuals, personally and professionally.

 

As I shared last week, in the past few weeks I’ve traveled to Albania, Washington, DC, and New Orleans just to name a few, but in speaking with my association colleagues I learned some of traveled to exotic and not so exotic locals like Dubai, Shanghai, and Sioux City, Iowa. My point is the Association world offers distinctive opportunities to meet and connect with people where they are, where they call home. It gives us a chance to interact with them in a comfortable environment and hopefully get to know them in a more substantial manner. It also allows us to make lasting connections with fellow association colleagues who share in that collective experience.

 

I had such an experience recently on one of my trips. I was stuck in an overcrowded Chicago O’Hare Airport (who hasn’t been) waiting for a delayed flight when I decided to grab a bite. As I sat down to eat a gentleman sat down next to me to eat his dinner. Suddenly, I hear “Paul Bishop” and as I look up there is my old colleague and friend, Greg Aronin, who worked for the Michigan Medical Society during my days with the Iowa Medical Society. I hadn’t seen or spoken with Greg in over a decade. For the next hour we caught up on work, family, and old acquaintances getting so wrapped up in our conversation we almost missed our respective flights home. It’s that kind of experience I think is sometimes unique to the Association world.

 

It is also the Association world that comes together when one of our own suffers a loss. Here at ABC one of our colleagues, Emily Dalthorp, lost her husband Eric when he passed away in his sleep on November 10th. Eric was only 35 years old when he died; he was a valued volunteer and participated in our family events. I’ve watched our ABC volunteer leadership and members as well as the Iowa association community reach out to support Emily and the ABC team during this difficult time. That type of compassion and outreach is hard to come by these days and is so greatly appreciated.

 

Being in the “association business” offers all of us opportunities that are unique only to the Association world. At its core it is all about our relationships, internally and externally, that will drive our experiences and potential for success. I encourage all of you this holiday season to take stock and be thankful for relationships forged, for the unique opportunities experienced, and for those yet to come. I know I sometime take these experiences for granted, but ultimately I know how important they are and how they continue to shape the association person I am today.

 

Happy Holidays to all!
Paul D. Bishop, CAE

ARTICLE OF INTEREST
Treasury Guidance on UBIT

 


Last month the Department of Treasury issued new rules on the provision in the new tax law that requires separate computation of unrelated business income tax (UBIT) for tax-exempt organizations with more than one unrelated trade or business. The interim guidance allows for organizations to net their parking and transportation expenses against any other UBIT income, which could wipe out any tax.
