A potential benefit of belonging to an association like MANA is networking with your fellow peers to exchange best practices and ideas. In the old days, MANA created local chapters where members networked in a face-to-face environment. Because of how busy everyone is these days, those no longer work.
Today technology offers social media as an alternative. MANA created a LinkedIn group for this purpose and to date 1,103 members have signed up. We encourage you to visit the MANA LinkedIn group and start networking with fellow members when you need their feedback or can help them with their issues. Participating in this manner also creates a sense of community.

- If your agreement says the principal pays commissions by the 15th of the month following receipt of customer payments, does that include all payments or does that exclude partial payments made by the customer?
