Welcome to AXA

exective of the yearThe Albany Executives Association (AXA) is the premiere business and professional networking organization in the Capital District that offers members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, referrals. Our organization is structured as one person per profession, working together to build their businesses through word-of-mouth marketing. You can find a list of our members by searching our member directory.

Board Holiday PartyAny number of AXA members will tell you that their membership is one of their most valuable business development aides. Another key benefit is that AXA is a category exclusive association ... you are the only individual who can market your product or service in your designated category.

AXA has luncheon meetings every Monday at the Italian American Community Center and host select events throughout the year. Please browse our site to learn more and feel free to contact us for more information or apply online to request membership.

AXA members lent a helping hand at the Schenectady City Mission on December 13th. They took a tour of the facility and sorted clothes to help those in need! Thank you to all the volunteers!
