The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association released a detailed agenda for Emergence2021 LIVE!, a virtual leadership program to be held on July 14 for emerging talent in the equipment finance industry. The one-day event, which is focused on the theme “Look to the Future,” is designed to help up-and-coming employees from ELFA member companies gain new leadership skills, devise strategies to shape their careers and develop a network of peers as they progress in their careers.

How can you develop foresight to prepare for what’s coming next? These are just a few of the topics we’ll discuss. Plus, we’re excited to network with existing and new contacts on our interactive platform. We look forward to seeing as many members of the emerging talent community as possible on July 14!”
