Professional Development Services


IAJVS offers a number of professional development services to the staff members of its affiliate agencies.


IAJVS produces a quarterly newsletter, E-Lights: An IAJVS Publication for Executive & Professional Leadership, which highlights new programs, grants, fundraising opportunities, and other events that are going on at our member agencies throughout the network.   E-Lights allows our agencies to discover what's new at other agencies and learn how their colleagues are addressing critical service needs and political issues.

Conference Calls

The IAJVS Professional Development Committee hosts a number of conference calls throughout the year in which staff members from the affiliate agencies can learn about the programming experience of other agencies and discuss techniques and tips for improving the service being offered to their various clients. Recent calls have focused on job development, improving employer relations, and techniques for developing successful corporate relationships.
