ELFA events—especially the Annual Convention—have created the business connections I need to take my company to the next level. If you are an equipment finance executive, your network is one of your most powerful tools. The convention is the opportunity to solidify existing relationships and develop new connections.

I make a point of attending every ELFA Annual Convention, and have for decades. There is no other event that offers this kind of value. It is well attended by companies large and small, from sales people to executives, enabling access to the decision makers and trend setters in our industry. That is to say nothing of the information available to attendees, with breakouts seemingly only getting better year after year. I’ll never miss it.

This will be my first Annual Convention since we came back to ELFA. I’m looking forward to hearing what ELFA has planned for 2018 and beyond. I’m also looking forward to getting a chance to spend time with other business council members and hearing what innovations they are working on and how we can work as a group to drive this industry forward.

The ELFA Annual Convention is by far the best opportunity I have each year to meet new people, discuss the challenges of our industry, discover new tactics for success and strengthen connections I have made over the years. I can say without hesitation that I am more effective in my role as a senior leader due to this annual event!

The transfer of knowledge and the strengthening of relationships are among the most significant drivers of success, both in business and elsewhere, and the ELFA Annual Convention conveniently offers both. It offers the unique opportunity to collaborate with industry leaders, learn about the blind spots and opportunities that might exist, and gain timely perspective from well-known leaders outside of our industry. With these factors in mind, I see the Annual Convention as an opportunity to invest in the long-term success of my company and the industry.
