Innovation Advisory Council

ELFA's Innovation Advisory Council, a seasoned group of senior innovation leaders, has been at the forefront of steering industry innovation discussions since its inception as an experimental working group in January 2019. Over the years, this council has actively monitored and dissected various digital strategies and cutting-edge techniques. Their insights have been disseminated through ELFA's webinars, facilitated discussions, conference sessions, social media posts, articles, and research, significantly aiding organizations in enhancing customer service and operational efficiencies. Their contributions extend further as they've hosted ELFA’s quarterly series of virtual Innovation Roundtables, spotlighting diverse industry representation and fostering discussions on technology, innovation, and future-focused topics. In 2023, ELFA transitioned this influential group into the formalized "Innovation Advisory Council," further solidifying their commitment to catalyzing industry-level innovation for years to come. See who's on the Council.
