 “Thank you AAEA!  Joining this organization was one of the best business decisions I could have made.  Opening a business is not easy and having great resources is a critical key to surviving.  The AAEA and its staff have been a wealth of knowledge and I am truly grateful.  To top it off, I was approved in lightning speed for the PPP loan, something that will be a great help to my business during this pandemic.  If you haven’t already, JOIN!  The information is out there, the help is available and Leslie and his team will make it happen!  Thanks so much AAEA!  I appreciate all that you do!”

Artashea L. Batts

“Becoming a member of AAEA is one of the best memberships my business possesses.  The help and guidance I receive from Leslie and staff has made and is making a huge difference in my business.  Sometimes is not what you know, but who you know.  Thanks, AAEA for your help and support!”

Linda Flournoy

“I just want to thank the AAEA for helping me get an approval for the SBA’s PPP & EIDL loans so that my business can stay open.  Thank you AAEA!”
