    I am a newbie. I am still in the planning and setup phase of my business. I just completed some landscape design courses and have an associate degree in business. I plan on keeping my current job for the time being and have the landscape business as a part time thing for now, hopefully full time sooner than later. I am in the process of getting an applicators license, insurance and a state tax id. My question is, should I be looking into joining an association also. I looked at some and it seems like they offer a lot in the way of education and more. What ones should I consider, and are there any local ones for northwest ohio that anyone is aware of. Thanks for the help

    Thanks for the input. I have seen OLA and ONLA and PLANET, wasn't sure which route to go.
