New Resources to Help You Succeed

Dear ELFA Member:

As you can probably tell from our new video, we are very excited to host the 2019 ELFA Annual Convention in our nation's capital for the first time in many years. Please watch this brief video featuring ELFA Chairman Jud Snyder to discover some of the special opportunities in store for you in Washington, D.C., Oct. 27-29. Register by Aug. 1 for the best rate -- we hope to see you there!
There's a lot to be excited about as we head into the second half of 2019. We’re pleased to highlight new resources to help you get the most from your ELFA membership:

Leverage Data
- Our Monthly Leasing and Finance Index continues to show strong second quarter performance for the equipment finance industry. The just-released 2019 Survey of Equipment Finance Activity reports that new business volume grew for the 9th consecutive year. We will continue to monitor and deliver the latest industry data to you -- don't miss our August SEFA webinar. Learn more.

Join the Conversation - Our new online communities are engaging more members than ever. If you haven't already, we encourage you to join a discussion group (LeaseTalk, AcctgTalk, LegalTalk or TaxTalk). It's a great way to share information and network. Learn more.

Embrace the Next Generation - Don't miss the new career development resources from the Emerging Talent Advisory Council, which is also planning a terrific agenda for Emergence2019 and two upcoming Emerging Talent Regional Networking Events. Learn more.

Make Your Voice Heard - At Capitol Connections, 125 ELFA members met with 175 Senate and House offices to advocate for the association’s policy priorities. As a next step, invite your local member of Congress to visit your office -- contact us for assistance.
