The definition of association is given. Its induction to the organization is not justified. To better understand the nature of this formation, it is necessary to consider its systemic nature. It is a certain kind of consistency and system. There is a strengthening of properties of individual elements. Completely definable are backbone connections in associated objects of different polar orientation. The allocation of association as an independent system has also a political importance for understanding and modeling society.
