To keep in touch with the latest news, research, and developments within your field of expertise, it's safe to assume that many of you belong to an association whose mission coincides with this goal. Not too long ago, attending the annual tradeshow or meeting of these associations, subscribing to their journals, and contacting fellow members via the telephone were your primary -- and perhaps only -- means of networking within the association to keep abreast of industry developments vital to your job and your professional development. Thanks to the World Wide Web, however, the ability to "network" has taken on a whole new meaning.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
