2016 AJFCA Annual Conference

Don't miss this year's AJFCA Annual Conference at the Westin Hotel in San Diego, May 15th - 17th! Registration closes one week from today, on Thursday, April 21st.
Join us for an enlightening Opening Plenary Lunch presentation by Elena Rossini, Italian filmmaker, on Sunday, May 15th. Elena works at the  intersection of creativity and social justice, highlighting issues that permeate our global culture, through her recent film, The Illusionist.

Enter a floating city at sea and walk in the footsteps of 225,000 sailors who served our county on the USS Midway Museum, as we relive nearly 50 years of world history aboard the longest-serving Navy aircraft  carrier of the 20th century while noshing and networking with colleagues on Sunday evening at the JFS San Diego Host Community Event.
On the morning of Monday, May 16th, we'll be joined by experts as they explore welcoming immigrants and supporting refugees, disabilities inclusion, and LGBTQ inclusion and Jewish values; issues at the forefront of our path to building stronger connections, communities and collaborations.

Annual Conference Facebook Page
The 2016 AJFCA Annual Conference Facebook page is designed as a medium for discussion between potential conference goers and registered conference goers, the Annual Conference Committee and AJFCA Staff. Feel free to discuss logistics (sharing cabs and planning off-site meals), ask questions regarding sessions, and share agency materials (annual reports, marketing brochures), etc . . .

This is the first year we're trying out a conference Facebook page and therefore the content of this page will be what we make it! Enjoy this new way to connect with network. Click here to join the 2016 AJFCA Annual Conference Facebook group. Please reach out to Jennie with questions.
