Who Are NASE Members

This month, we are going to take a look at not one of our fantastic Members specifically, but rather our members as a collective.  Using data from over 600 members who responded to our 2017 Member Survey in November of last year, let’s find out who the NASE member is…statistically speaking.

An NASE Member has likely been in business less than 15 years with the highest percentage (almost 30%) of NASE Members having started their business between 2000 – 2009.
