Member Testimonials

 

"I know that this is an extremely challenging time for everyone in the travel industry. I wanted to take a moment to encourage you to renew your AMAC membership and to share why I renewed my AMAC membership.

Now, more than ever, I lean on my fellow AMAC members for support during this difficult time and to help forge a path forward through the pandemic.  I love the people that I have met through AMAC–there is such a diverse group from fellow entrepreneurs, to airport and government officials.

The important work that AMAC does has really come to light during this pandemic. AMAC has stepped up and worked tirelessly to push the government for relief for us. AMAC made me aware of the disaster relief loan. AMAC advocates for the ACDBE program to make sure that it stays in place and it has given me a greater understanding and appreciation for the ACDBE program. And when we come out on the other side of this pandemic, I believe that the AMAC community will be even stronger and well positioned for a strong recovery."Sarah Imberman, Owner & Operator, S.
