Join AXA

Prospective Members

AXA is a vibrant association of successful business leaders in the Capital District, whose sole purpose while gathering for our weekly luncheon is to share business opportunities and network in order to develop each member's business. The AXA Bulletin, our weekly association newsletter, communicates — exclusively to members — leads generated from these weekly luncheons.

The value of an AXA membership is, to an extent, determined by the effort a member puts into making it work for them. Any 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.

After completing the application you will be contacted within 1-2 business days and instructed where to send the $200.00 application fee. The application must be completed by an officer of the corporation or by an owner, if not incorporated. The persons designated as representative and alternate must have the authority within your business to make decisions that would benefit other AXA members. Membership is a commitment to regularly attend weekly meetings and not to belong to any competing leads / networking group. Quarterly dues are $279.00, which includes the cost of weekly lunches.

The Board of Directors on the recommendation of the Membership Committee considers all applications. Applications are acted upon in two to seven weeks.
