The Associate Board provides motivated, mission-driven professionals with opportunities to develop executive board-level skills in the areas of governance, strategy and fundraising, The Associate Board meets on a monthly basis to share ideas, develop camaraderie, and to create plans in support of JPA. Each February, the Associate Board hosts "All in for Kids Casino Night," an evening that lives up to the slogan "I Play for JPA!" This past February, the Associate Board generated more than $100,000 towards JPA programs and services for children suffering from abuse, neglect and violence.

The Associate Board has a voice on the Executive Board of Directors and works closely with the President & CEO and the Director of Events and Media on key marketing, membership and fundraising initiatives. Each Associate Board member serves on one or more committees allowing a wide range of expertise to help shape the future of JPA.
