About ASHA


For 25 years, industry leaders have put their trust in ASHA as the premier source for research, conferences and advocacy.  We cater to the unique needs of senior executives engaged in the development, ownership, operations, and financing of seniors housing and we deliver on our commitment to quality.  Membership in ASHA continues to be an outstanding investment for busy executives.  


ASHA’s research products and initiatives are widely recognized as relevant, substantive, and actionable.  Original research as well as jointly sponsored reports include a suite of Special Issue Briefs, the State of Seniors Housing, ASHA 50, Construction Monitor, and detailed reports that will help you better understand the opportunities and challenges of the seniors housing business.  In addition to receiving newly released resources, members have 24-hour exclusive access to our robust archive of reports.  


Our meetings are strictly limited to ASHA members.  Our goal is to give executives exclusive opportunities to hear from nationally renowned leaders from business and academia, to participate in peer-to-peer sessions on topical and emerging issues, and to create a relaxed, yet profitable networking experience.  


ASHA is proud to have the largest seniors housing PAC focused exclusively on supporting federal candidates who understand and are favorable to the interests of seniors housing.  For more than two decades, ASHA’s lobbying team has worked to educate policymakers about our industry and protect your interests.  Our federal lobbying team has extensive experience on Capitol Hill, and works year-round with Members of Congress to ensure the industry has a strong voice on policy matters.  


In early 2016, ASHA will launch the first of its kind national consumer education initiative to help seniors, families, and other “influencers” better understand their senior living options in order to make empowered decisions.  This major new initiative will include powerful public relations and social media efforts and the creation of an objective robust consumer website that is intended to help shape perceptions of the senior living experience and improve the understanding of our communities.
