Asociación internacional de literatura y cine españoles siglo XXI (International Association for 21st Century Spanish Literature and film), ACLA (Comparative Literature), AIS (Association for Israel Studies), AJS (Association for Jewish Studies), Modern Language Association (Executive Committee Member, Hebrew Literature Discussion Group 2009-2013), NAPH (National Association of Professors of Hebrew).

In 2015 Stacy established an international working group – scholars, authors, and Sephardic descendants in some wider professions, from the U.S., Canada, Spain, and Israel. The group focuses on how Spain today engages with medieval and early modern Iberian Jews through historical fiction, historiography, art, music, theater, film, tourism, commercialism, and the preservation of once Jewish spaces in the old sections of Spanish towns and cities. Also included are Jews in Spain today and the country’s modern and contemporary connections with the Sephardic diaspora around the Mediterranean, in Northern Europe, and in the Americas.
