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!

Action Window Cleaning (AWCplus) has been the trusted name in professional window cleaning since 1975.  Led by President Lisa Despart, this second generation family business provides commercial window cleaning and aerial services, “plus a whole lot more” to customers in the Capital Region and beyond.  As a certified NYS WBE (Women Business Enterprise), AWC is prepared to help companies reach their diversity goals while working with a vendor who delivers a quality product at a fair price. AWC “does it in the air”, as a majority of our services require the use of a ladder, lift or other aerial device.  We have the tools to access hard to reach areas, the experienced staff, and perhaps most important, the proper insurance coverage.  We are small enough to customize your maintenance plan and large enough to meet the needs of our customers. 

What is a good lead for AWC?  New and existing buildings, two stories and up, such as office buildings, colleges/schools, and hotels.  Great contacts for AWC would be facility managers, construction project managers and building owners. 

AWC does very little advertising, with most of our work coming from referrals.  A company that flourishes, almost strictly on referrals, says a lot about that company.  With over forty years of experience, coupled with our knowledge of the industry and continuing education, AWC has earned its reputation as the preferred choice as your building maintenance partner.




Taking the lead together...

The objective of the Albany Executives Association, Inc. shall be to institute and maintain a method of exchanging and interchanging business information among its members and fostering relationships to achieve business growth.
