Family Affair Distributing Inc.

Being a member of ACIT affords businesses the opportunity, across a wide range of initiatives, to partake in networking events that are designed to impart knowledge and develop business connections.

The term "networking" can be overused today and oftentimes reflects an implicit element of quid pro quo. This is not the case with ACIT networking events. Our events and forums are solely designed to be informative and resourceful, with the core goal of providing discernable benefit to the business owners and professionals who are spending their valuable time with us.

We are recognized for having among the best-organized and best-attended events on Long Island. Because we understand the needs of our members, ACIT makes it an imperative to provide quality access to notable and issue-relevant speakers as well as key Long Island decision and policy makers. We are an organization without political agenda or motive, thus providing our membership with opportunities to hear all sides of issues impacting life on Long Island.

Our networking events take many forms:
Monthly Breakfasts and Luncheons
Expos and Trade Shows
Business and Technology Symposiums

Plus, we take the opportunity to celebrate business relationships and the great accomplishments of our business communities through such events as:
Golf Outings
Reverend Monsignor Thomas J. Hartman Humanitarian Luncheon
Annual Leadership Awards Luncheon

ACIT has been serving and supporting the needs of Long Island businesses for forty-five years. Our organization began simply enough; a local group of business professionals sought to create a forum of information exchange in order to learn about resources for their businesses and to share experiences and opportunities for growth.

Now, over four decades later, ACIT continues its strong tradition of providing such access to small and mid-size businesses across all of Long Island. Today, our organization represents hundreds of businesses across all spectrums of industry, asset size, and business lifecycle (i.e. start-ups, growing businesses, maturing businesses, etc.). Making a business impact in today's fast paced, time-stressed and highly competitive marketplace is a challenge. At ACIT, we fully understand this and translate this to our core deliverable: Providing real and consistent value to our members.

 Dear Margaret:

 

After nearly 40 years I will be leaving Long Island at the end of June and am moving to Boynton Beach.

       With a tear in my eye and a knot in my heart I will be saying good-by to a great many friends and business associates. And one of my fondest associates is you and the ACIT.

      Having searched far and wide for a networking organization that understood the definition of networking, five years ago I settled on the ACIT and I've never had to look back.

       The enormous turnout at your events has always impressed me and I have found your members to be friendly and ever ready to talk business. I've been successful in making many valuable contacts over the years that have helped me to grow my business, and can only hope that I find a comparable organization in Florida.

       And, I have to say that, clearly, you make the difference. You are relentless in your efforts to make each event a success. Yet, with all that you have to do you find the time to make people welcome and introduce newcomers to the fold.

 

You will be sorely missed.

 

Fondly

 Dave Posner

      From the minute I attended my first meeting at ACIT, I knew it was a perfect fit for my business.  As I looked around the room, I could see that the possibilities for networking were endless.  ACIT allows me to meet other businesses who can utilize my company's products and services and also brings me together with other businesses I can refer others to as well.  My membership has also allowed me the ability to access other members on a more equal footing and has afforded me the ability to join committees where I can not only be of service but I can network on a smaller and more intimate level.  Finally, I also love the fact that ACIT gives back to the community in their tireless efforts to help the non for profit organizations on Long Island.  I can not say enough about ACIT and the benefits of joining this incredible networking organization.  The friendships I have made and the business contacts that I have made are invaluable to me and I have see tremendous growth in my business due directly to my association with ACIT!   I highly recommend ACIT to any one who wants to take their business to the next level!

     ACIT means business. I invite clients and potential clients to join my table, and business happens! This month alone I got TWO thank you notes from people who met and followed up with new clients for themselves.
It really works.
