Resources for Selecting Payment Methods/Industry Organizations
|Unit 5.2-Resources for Selecting Payment Methods||
Industry organizations are most important resources. For every industry there is an industry organization and most likely publications as well. Many of these organizations have international committees that may be involved in hosting training seminars, networking events, trade missions, and/or government lobbying efforts opportunities. It is important that an international manager become a member of the pertinent industry organization and at the minimum browse the website and publications of the organization. If funds are available and the events are meaningful, an international manager might find that attendance could be very beneficial.
