SURVEY SHOWS PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS ARE BEST WAY TO ENHANCE CAREER

 MENLO PARK, Calif., Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A sure way to shift a career into high gear is through active membership in professional organizations, not a trip to your favorite social club, according to more than half (53 percent) of top managers in a national survey.
 The survey was developed by Accountemps, the world's largest temporary staffing service for accounting, finance and information systems. It was conducted by an independent research firm, which polled 150 executives from the nation's 1,000 largest companies.
 The respondents were asked: "Which one of the following activities do you feel is the most effective way to enhance an executive's career?" Their responses:
 Participating in professional
 or trade associations 53%
 Regularly reading
 business publications 39%
 Joining social or civic clubs 8%
 Total 100%
 "In choosing which organizations will advance a career the most, executives would do well to select those that directly relate to their professions," said Max Messmer, chairman of Accountemps. "Such groups can help busy managers stay informed about the latest practices in their field. The survey suggests that civic and social groups, while providing excellent ways to support the community or gain personal satisfaction, are not quite as effective for career networking."
 There are more than 160 Accountemps offices in the United States, Canada and Europe.
