Your membership in a graphic design organization will offer various perks and benefits. Look beyond the fine print and realize that your involvement in the organization is also a source of networking and new job sources. If the organization has an online forum, participate in helping others, as well as in asking questions. Be sure to lurk a bit first and find the "temperature" or attitude of those participating. It's best to gow ith the flow of a conversation rather than jumping in and "interrupting" a thread with an off-topic request or remark.
