AACS has built a partnership with several companies to serve our school members. Our Affinity Committee has not only ensured these companies offer quality service in their fields of expertise, but have also dedicated themselves to offering our members special pricing/discounts. As an added bonus, these partners also give back to the association each time our members do business with them. So, not only are you getting a top-notch service for a great price, but you are also benefiting the association as a whole. If your company would like to participate as an exclusive partner, please email email@example.com. (Please note, AACS does not endorse or certify anything about the capabilities, performance or character of these companies.)
