#5 Proportional Voting Increases Value For Bigger Members

Every trade association knows that size matters except where it doesn't -- or hasn't. 

A recurring complaint among trade associations is that large members are treated the same as smaller members, even though their investment and footprint, by comparison, are typically many times larger. 

The Association For Home & Hospice Care Of North Carolina recently won the approval of 80% of its members to change voting practices. The association now gives the 10 largest members in terms of revenue three votes on governance items, up from one previously. Other members get two votes, and still others still get one vote.
