AJAS Membership

  • AJAS Annual Conference – Every year, the AJAS Annual Conference provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas concerning every facet in the field of Jewish aging, and aging in general. AJAS spends months in planning this blockbuster event and spares no effort in gathering the very best presenters to discuss the hottest issues affecting member organizations. Many members say the AJAS Annual Conference is the single most important meeting they attend each year.
  • Regional Forums – AJAS Regional Forums are one-day gatherings hosted by member organizations that provide an opportunity for other members to come together with local colleagues to focus on hot industry topics. The Forums contain both structured presentations, plenty of time for networking and a site tour of the host facility.
  • Webinars – AJAS hosts several 1-hour web-conferences each year to give members from across the United States and Canada an interactive forum to share programs, best practices and innovations, and hear from leading industry experts.
  • Listserv Access – AJAS hosts several listservs where colleagues from across North America can connect with and learn from each other. In every listserv, members can post questions, participate in conversations, and view past threads. The listservs are: AJAS CEOs, AJAS Marketing & Development, AJAS CFOs & Financial Managers, Chaplains, AJAS Food and Beverage Directors, and AJAS Plant Operations Managers.
  • Advocacy and Legislative Updates – AJAS works closely with our elected officials and political appointees to advance our agendas in the areas of aging and seniors in Jewish communities. AJAS has a strong fraternal and collegial relationship with LeadingAge and the AJAS CEO sits on the LeadingAge Legislative & Advocacy Committee as well as the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations.
  • Forums for Innovation – AJAS strives to partner with local and national organizations on the most innovative methods to deliver care and services to our elders.
