“"My company has been a member of AAKC for around 10 years now and we have seen our business grow is so many ways. The first couple of years I/we were not involved like we should and we did see some results but nothing like we have now. As I started getting more involved, getting to know everyone we all have become family. No the business was not just handed to me, but opportunity came as we built the relationships. As the relationships grow, as have the business opportunities, we have landed the contracts from small to large. Without AAKC Brummel Lawn and Landscape LLC would not be where it is today. Personally, I would not be where I am today with AAKC, from doing the CAM program to LEAD to Lyceum. I have learned so much, grown as a person and as a busmess owner. I have laughed and cried with some of these experiences. The coolest part is that as my business has grown I have been able to do more. I'm not just an owner/operator but have taken my company to employ over 60 people. Yes it has been a lot of work but AAKC has helped us get there. I could go on and on with stories upon stories but just know AAKC and Debbie are amazing and I can 't say enough great things about them and thank them enough for the places we have gone and are going!"

“AAKC is my home away from home. My committee involvement is, by far, the most rewarding, both personally and professionally. The deep connections made last a lifetime and are the building blocks for great business relationships. It has been a great way to be involved in our KC community, alongside some of our strongest leaders in the apartment industry.”
-Jennifer Johnson, Client Relations Manager, Signal Restoration
“The AAKC cares about the professional development of members, and provides relevant educational seminars and training classes year-round. The AAKC hosts a variety of unique and exciting networking events empowering members with partnerships and resources needed to succeed in our evolving industry. I’m a proud member of the AAKC and I’m grateful to not only serve on committees with my peers, but to give back to the community through the numerous outreaching opportunities the AAKC offers.”

“AAKC has been the most rewarding, inspiring and genuine organization I have personally ever belonged to. They embraced LIXO as if they had known us for years, we felt loved. The AAKC family has been truly helpful and supportive of our efforts. We now belong to committees such has the Beer & Wine, and Tradeshow. We volunteer for events and make sure we support the apartment communities as a whole. Being a part of AAKC is more than just a membership, it’s a family. They truly want all businesses, apartment communities and residents to have the best experience possible. I recommend anyone who is wanting to work, play or live in an apartment community to research and join AAKC, they are the real deal! ”
