Clicking through some of my blog stats, I came across this post from Bob Levy on founding a Product Management Association. I just asked Michael Salerno (also mentioned in Bob's post), president of the BPMA whether there was a NY chapter of the PMA and it doesn't look like there is (Michael provided a list of some other interesting organizations though). I'm a little surprised that there is no NYPMA. I mean, it's New York!
I blogged recently on how to work with (and the value of working with) professional associations. If one doesn't exist in your area (geographic or industry), why not think of starting one? Bob gives some good advice on this topic.
