So what is an 'Industry Association'?

Also known as an Industry Trade Group, Business Association or Sector Association, these organisations are founded and funded by businesses that operate in a specific industry. An Industry Association typically participates in the provision of technical advice/assistance, can conduct research and development of common interest to members, undertake public relations activities, provide education, engage in advocacy on behalf of the industry and publish material. A major focus of Industry Association activities will be in finding consensus between member companies on issues relevant to members. E.g. representation for standardisation.
