Gaynelle Adams Jackson is the Founder and Administrative Member of Advanced Planning Services, LLC (APS).

APS is a family-owned full-service company specializing in meeting & event management, program planning and small business development and event planning training

Gaynelle has more than twenty-five years of meeting and event management experience and more than ten years of experience in program development and training.   She has established a strong network of business and community resources and has built a reputation as an advocate for African American and microbusinesses. 

Our customers include major corporations, associations, small businesses resource organizations and nonprofits.  Her niche is organizations that target the African American market or focus on African American history.

Many of our clients do not have an on-site planner to handle their larger meetings and special events.  Our company has the expertise to handle everything from securing the most appropriate facility, planning the program and coordinating all the support services needed to make the event a success. 

We save our clients time and money and eliminate their worry and stress so they can sit back, relax and enjoy their function. 

We also serve as consultants to those clients that like to “do-it-themselves”.  We give them step-by-step guidelines so that they can plan their own events.

We are a small company and we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver quality services.  We know that our clients value an event that is efficiently planned and professionally implemented and we are committed to doing just that. 

We are corporate by design and creative by nature, but our business is still “Making Your Special Event Special!”

When Gaynelle is not planning meetings and events she is advocating for micro and small businesses, as the President of the Alabama MicroEnterprise Network (AMEN).  AMEN is a 501c (3) organization that speaks with one voice to serve, educate and empower Alabama’s microbusiness development organizations and the entrepreneurs they represent.
