May 21, 2012, 06:00 AM

Lori A. Dean, CLP, of Arvest Equipment Finance, is the Chairperson for NEFA’s 2012 Funding Symposium to be held September 13-15, in Washington, DC.

Ms. Dean, who recently received her Certified Leasing Professional Certification from the CLP Foundation, is Equipment Finance Operations Manager, VP, at Arvest Equipment Finance, in Fort Smith, Arkansas.  Arvest Equipment Finance is a Broker/Lessor Member of NEFA and a division of Arvest Bank.

 “I look forward to working with such a diverse and talented group of volunteers as the conference planning committee, for the upcoming NEFA Funding Symposium”, said, Ms. Dean.  “The networking opportunities and lasting friendships made by attending the NEFA conferences have benefited our organization over the years in many ways. Our industry is so specialized and picking up interesting tidbits at each conference has offered a wealth of opportunities that I feel contributed to the success of our division and helps us form strategies for the future.”

“We’re very pleased to have Lori at the helm of our Funding Symposium this year,” said, Gerry Egan, Executive Director of the National Equipment Finance Association, (NEFA).  “This conference also serves as our annual business meeting and last year drew a record attendance for us.  Given this year’s location, in the heart of Washington, DC, we expect another great turnout.  I’ve had the occasion to work with Lori on some other projects and I know she’ll lead us through another great conference.”

The NEFA Funding Symposium draws commercial equipment finance professionals from across the US and Canada to network with their peers, participate in quality educational programs and discussions, and to see leading edge exhibitors of funding and other critical operational services.  The 2012 Funding Symposium will be held September 13-15, at the Renaissance Washington, DC Dupont Circle Hotel, conveniently located near some of Washington’s best dining and nightlife as well as the most popular monuments and other tourist destinations and the Washington Metro System.
