Joe Jedlowski, a talented healthcare administrator with many years of experience in the assisted living field, is happy to announce that he's become a member of the American Geriatrics Society. He hopes that, with his membership, he can learn even more about the industry he loves, and find out how he can continue to improve the lives of the population he serves.
"I've always been someone who believes in continuing education and life-long learning," Joe Jedlowski
says. "My membership in the American Geriatrics Society will make this so much easier for me, as I'll have access to their publications and annual meetings, where so much industry-related information is shared on a peer-to-peer basis."
While some organizations require employees to hold memberships in professional societies, Joe Jedlowski
came to his membership on a completely voluntary basis. In fact, signing up for membership was his own idea to begin with.
"Many other people I know who are members were pressured to join by their bosses or colleagues," Joe Jedlowski
says. "These people may be great at their jobs, but they might not be inspired to learn more about the industry or the issues we face as a group. I, on the other hand, love this sort of information and I couldn't wait to be able to access it on my own, anytime I wanted to."
Membership in the American Geriatrics Society isn't free, but the price seems reasonable to Joe Jedlowski
. He's even paying his membership fees on his own, with no help from his employers.
"I think their membership prices are completely fair, considering all of the benefits members receive," says Joe Jedlowski
. "In fact, I think it's a very good value, considering all of the information and support we receive as members. I can't believe I never signed up before!"
