The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) announced it is accepting nominations for its Distinguished Service Award, which honors an individual who has made a significant contribution to the association and the equipment finance industry. Nominations must be submitted to ELFA by Friday, June 24, 2011.
The award winner will be formally recognized during the ELFA 50th Annual Convention in San Antonio, Texas, in October, and will be profiled in ELT Magazine and the ELFA SmartBrief e-newsletter.
ELFA’s ability to achieve its goals is largely dependent upon the work of a large number of volunteers from within the membership. Volunteers perform a number of functions:
Act as information experts and consultants on a full range of industry issues.
Represent the industry in a variety of regulatory and legislative matters.
Analyze market trends and assist in research.
Serve as content experts for conference planning, promotion and delivery of key information and knowledge.
Assist in the positive positioning of asset finance to providers of debt and equity.
With the introduction of the Distinguished Service Award in 2004, ELFA established a formal process for identifying and rewarding key volunteers who because of their outstanding contributions deserve special recognition.
All ELFA members are invited to nominate a member (including themselves) who they believe merits this award.
