Membership FAQs

ALFA Membership for Assisted Living Professionals

How do I join ALFA?

It is the company, not the individual that can join ALFA. Company membership covers all of your executives with benefits that extend to your corporate headquarters staff of executives, regional executives, and Executive Directors of communities.

You can join ALFA online by clicking on the orange "Join" button at the top of any ALFA page or or via regular mail by downloading our applications.


Can my community join if the corporation doesn't?
No. Individual senior living communities tied to a company (not independently owned/operated) must have their corporation agree to ALFA membership, before community-level executives can receive benefits.


Why should my company join ALFA?
ALFA serves as the voice of consumer-driven, resident-centered senior living companies, and the seniors and families they serve.

An investment in ALFA both connects you with news, information, insights and resources to help you operate better and make a positive impact in one of the nation’s most essential — and expanding — business sectors. Your organization’s membership makes a positive impact in the senior living community, critical to the needs of millions of seniors and their families requiring long term services and support.

Additionally, through ALFA, we create opportunities for you to build new business relationships and nurture existing ones. We stand ready to help you continue to prosper and to work together to promote excellence in senior living.


Who receives our bill/invoice for ALFA membership?
Your corporate decision-maker, in many cases your COO and CEO.


Can I still join ALFA State Affiliates in my state?
Yes, in addition to joining ALFA (national) directly through your corporation, ALFA encourages you to join the ALFA state affiliate that best serves your state level lobbying interests. Please feel free to contact your State Affiliates.

What are the membership dues?
For a senior living provider, the membership dues are $11 per licensed assisted living operational resident capacity (ORC). While the value is high, the rate is still below other organizations that charge between $19 to $24 per resident capacity. With one direct corporate membership to ALFA, more of your executives and corporate employees are covered with innovative new benefits, discounts and more. Allied Membership rates vary based on the level of engagement.

Can I subscribe to Assisted Living Executive?
Yes, If you are employed by a senior living provider, you may qualify for a FREE 12 month Assisted Living Executive subscription, delivered to your door! Non-providers in the senior living industry can purchase an annual subscription of the magazine from the ALFA Store for $95 or you can view the digital version at ALFAPublications.org. Learn more about the Assisted Living Executive.

Who should I contact if I have membership questions?
If you have membership questions please contact Kari Horesky at 703.562.1179 or email Membership@ALFA.org.
