If you have a knack for planning and coordinating events and parties, you are already an event planner. Although there is no set requirements by law to become an event planner, it is wise to join an association to gain education in the field.

The Event Planners Association is a nationwide network of event planners, florists, photographers, amusement professionals and more. Joining this network allows an individual to grow their vendor base.

Successful event planners need to have a list of trustworthy vendors at their fingertips. When a client asks for the best chocolate covered strawberries and the funniest DJ in town, the event planner should be able to make a phone call to make it happen seamlessly.

To become a member of the Event Planners Association, simply check out their website for current membership costs. There are different levels of membership can include educational opportunities, insurance coverage, access to attorney assistance and vendor connections.

There are local chapters already established in Los Angeles, Phoenix, New York City and Texas.
