Best Practices Roundtables

May-June 2022


Roundtables Stimulate Discussion

Exchanging best practices was the name of the game at a series of roundtables held April 12 in Chicago. The interactive, half-day programs drew equipment finance executives together for information sharing and critical thinking about issues they face as leaders of their organizations.  After 24 months of zoom meetings, webinars and online conferences, attendees enjoyed the opportunity to learn and network in-person.
