Earlier this month, some National Aircraft Resale Association (NARA) members explained the value they receive from their association membership, which is in essence to create a competitive advantage for them and their clients by leveraging their global, collective knowledge and maintaining the highest professional standards.
In addition to gaining insight into industry issues from other members who have deeper expertise in certain subjects, they commented on the relationships and friendships they have developed through semi-annual member meetings, which focus on association business, educational opportunities and member networking. In addition, many members said clients chose to work with them because they uphold the high ethical code of conduct required by all member companies.
Following is a little more insight from a few additional NARA members.
“My membership and participation in NARA have afforded me an invaluable opportunity to make friendships and build professional relationships, which make deals happen!” – Aviation Legal Group, P.A.
“Whenever we perform an aircraft acquisition for inventory or a client, we always start the search with fellow NARA members. The likelihood of a successful, drama-free transaction increases exponentially with a fellow NARA dealer.” – Banyan Air Service
“NARA has given me the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of getting to know many professionals within our industry, which has contributed to much of our success!” – Wright Brothers Aircraft Title, Inc.
”We have the opportunity to work with brokers and dealers across the country. Those in the NARA network are far and away the most ethical, knowledgeable and pleasurable to work with. I believe the organization’s code of ethics is a big part of that.
“Our membership in the organization has also allowed us to foster a better understanding and acceptance of our product. The relationships we have developed with the members of NARA have even led to referrals outside the organization.
“We are extremely pleased with our NARA membership and the myriad of benefits we receive from it.” – Aircraft Title Insurance Agency, Inc.
