Affirmative action  
Why do you think people put National Association of Black Accountants on their resumes?

Here's how it works:
Government pressures big corporations for meeting diversity quotas.
So, if percentage of black employees at BigCo is below certain level - BigCo management is starting getting heat poured on their heads.
The next obvious step is to hire "diverse" people. But how do you do that, if hiring based on race is legally prohibited?

Here's when National Association of Black Accountants comes in handy: candidates who want to attract corporate interest to their diversity profile - put association name on their resumes, so now corporations can easily search for these diversity candidates.
Problem solved.
