The ASCHA Weekly Rollout is our weekly communication to members. It provides members with key information related to ASCHA’s current advocacy work, updates on working group and committee progress, important news items, and resources. Much like our members “roll-out” services to their residents/tenants, our Weekly Rollout reflects the same philosophy of service.
