An important way for associations to add value and showcase their advocacy efforts is to hold post-election forums to discuss the results and their implications for the industry or profession represented.

But the Nov. 3 election is both momentous and fraught with potential problems, with control of the White House and Senate at stake and the results of the presidential contest possibly unknown for an extended period.

As a result, some associations are scheduling their election recaps later than they normally would, including the Mortgage Bankers Association and the Electronic Transactions Association. Both groups are holding their events on Nov. 17, a full two weeks after the polls close.
