July 30, 2012, 06:39 AM

Major General William D. Wofford, The Adjutant General, Arkansas National Guard, will speak at NEFA’s Funding Symposium in Washington, DC, Friday, September 14, 2012.

General Wofford will speak about the issues facing active duty military service members and their families both during deployment and upon their return, as well as the benefits to businesses of hiring veterans.

Kyle Gilliam, CLP, President of Arvest Equipment Finance, and a Member of the Board of Directors of NEFA, said “Having had the pleasure of serving on Major General William Wofford's Air Guard Staff, I know his experiences as the acting Adjutant General for the State of Arkansas will provide a great amount of clarity in regards to issues facing today’s veterans and their families.”  Gilliam retired from the Arkansas Air National Guard in 2011 after 27 years of service.

“In planning this year’s Funding Symposium our group thought Washington, DC would be an appropriate and inspiring place to hear about the sacrifices of, and both the struggles and opportunities that face, our returning veterans” said, Gerry Egan, Executive Director of the National Equipment Finance Association (NEFA).

The Funding Symposium draws attendees and exhibitors from all parts of the commercial equipment finance business from all across the United States and Canada.  All industry professionals are invited whether they are members of NEFA or not.  The 2012 Funding Symposium is being held at the Renaissance Washington, DC DuPont Circle Hotel, in Washington, DC, September 13-15.
