Don’t Just Belong to an Association

I've seen many resumes where the candidate belongs to an association related to their profession.

But my first question is how are they involved in the association?

Just being a member has little value. You have to be involved, otherwise potential employers will just see it as resume padding.

So, volunteer, get on a committee, go to conferences, meetings, etc. and learn things you can use to change and improve what you do for your company. Then put THAT on your resume.
