We are excited to announce that JAS has been awarded the Aspen Chamber Resort Association 2019 Non-Profit of the Year Award! This honor is awarded every year to a non-profit that consistently provides outstanding quality, excellence and service in the Roaring Fork Valley and strives to uphold the organization’s Mission, vision, purpose and core values. We would like to thank ACRA for recognizing the hard work that JAS is doing in our Valley and for all of the support they have given us through the years!
