I’m excited to participate in the ELFA LIVE event this year! I appreciate all the ELFA staff has done to deliver ELFA updates, compelling keynote speakers and targeted breakout sessions in a new virtual environment.

As an industry we have pivoted very well to the temporary new normal of virtual meetings. However It is easy to be zoomed out after all these teleconferences. ELFA has done an excellent job in selecting a virtual platform that will allow attendees to feel as close to an onsite meeting as possible without the need for travel. The LTi team is looking forward to listening to the keynote speakers and breakout sessions. The virtual exhibit hall will allow for service providers to virtually meet with current and potential customers. Plus, who doesn’t like a virtual happy hour or two? :-)

ELFA 2020 Business LIVE! is a unique opportunity to reconnect with clients and peers in the leasing and finance industry. I look forward to networking virtually, as it will add a new dimension to both old and new relationships, and will bring our ELFA community even closer.

While the difficult times have impacted events, that does not require us to be isolated from learning and engaging with industry expects. With all the uncertainty we face, it is events like ELFA 2020 Business LIVE! that provide the knowledge to assist us in making thoughtful and insightful business decisions.

It is in times exactly like these that customers of the equipment finance industry need our help. ELFA 2020 Business LIVE! comes at the right time to both keep our industry strong and help individual members grow professionally. The agenda looks great and I’m looking forward to attending.

As a relatively new professional to the equipment finance industry, and a member of the Emerging Talent Advisory Council, last year was my first time attending the ELFA Annual Convention. While I will miss the in-person comradery, I am very excited to see what ELFA has in store for us at ELFA 2020 Business LIVE! I am especially looking forward to hearing Peter Zeihan and his thoughts on the current geopolitical climate given what a wild year 2020 has been. I’ve been following him on social media for years and have always enjoyed his perspective on global events. Can’t wait to see y’all online! #GSD.

This will be my first ELFA conference. I recently joined the equipment finance industry with Arvest Equipment Finance, however I have been with Arvest Bank since 2011. I have been eager to learn more and engage with others in the industry, as I believe I have found my niche. I received my CLFP designation in June and I got to meet a few peers, however I would love to meet others and find out more about how we all work together for the greater good!

2020 has challenged us to adapt to a new way of life. ELFA 2020 Business LIVE! is a great opportunity to network within the industry, learn about new trends and continue to expand and refine our capabilities in a virtual world. The potential benefits of much larger participation and connecting with new people in the industry is exciting. ELFA is an entrepreneurial community that finds a way to make it happen. I expect this year’s conference to take it to the next level.

Although I will miss seeing my colleagues in person, I am registered and looking forward to ELFA 2020 Business LIVE! It will be a great opportunity to get back to networking and stay informed in our increasingly tumultuous environment. Not to mention the stellar speaker lineup and panel discussions about issues impacting our industry. I hope to ‘see’ everyone there!

I’m very excited to be attending the first virtual ELFA annual conference, ELFA 2020 Business LIVE! While I hope it’s the last and we can all see each other live in 2021, this year will bring much needed time to reconnect with each other and to learn about all the new and exciting opportunities ahead. I also think it’s important we pull together as an industry and show that we are still connected, still vibrant, still important and able to pivot and adjust to serve our customers.

I am looking forward to attending ELFA 2020 Business LIVE! Although I will miss the in-person social aspect of the customary Annual Convention, my experience with Zoom events during the lockdown means that the educational element will be just as valuable as the usual breakout sessions.

It’s more important than ever for us to come together as a community to connect, exchange insights and prepare for what’s coming next. I’m really looking forward to ELFA 2020 Business Live! and encourage as many members as possible to attend.
