Upcoming ELFA Webinars

Building a Foundation for Digital Agility
Wednesday, June 17, 1-2 p.m. ET
We are all learning more about being Agile during the COVID-19 crisis. The ability to move quickly and leverage digital technology and tools has never been more important. Is your business foundation ready for these changes? What does it take to put changes in place? We will discuss real-life examples of teams that built organizational agility, how that investment enables them to respond quickly in crisis, and what is possible for the future. Join us for an interactive discussion on what it takes to build an agile culture that enables resilience and innovation. Featuring: Moderator Deborah Reuben, Chair, ELFA Technology Innovation Workgroup and Founder & CEO of TomorrowZone, with panelists Tina Cartwright, SVP, Information Technology and Operations, U.S. Bank Equipment Finance; Steve Siler, CTO, Stonebriar Commercial Finance; and Denis Stypulkoski, SVP, CIO, Commercial Division, TIAA Bank.

Best Practices for Managing Sales Tax in Turbulent Times
Wednesday, June 24, 1-2 p.m. ET
Find out what sales tax professionals need to know in three key areas: (1) immediate concerns with lease re-writes as a result of financially distressed lessees; (2) strategic planning with marketplace facilitator laws; and (3) audit resolution best practices (keep your cash!). As governments are faced with budget shortfalls and reduced resources, what tactics will they turn to for revenue generation? What do sales tax professionals need to be prepared for when the states and localities turn to base expansion and increased audit activity?
Featuring: David W. Machemer, Partner, Horwood Marcus & Berk; Eric Fader, Managing Director; Sales and Use Tax Central Region Leader, BDO USA, LLP; and Linda O'Donohue, Esq., Tax Manager, Wells Fargo Equipment Finance.

Unconscious Bias
Wednesday, July 15, 1-2 p.m. ET
What is unconscious bias? What “blind spots” shape your view of yourself and others? How can you mitigate bias? Join Janet Pope, North America Corporate Responsibility Director at Capgemini, to explore these topics and learn how to integrate inclusive leadership behaviors into your day to day.
Featuring: Michael Baez, Director, Banking and Diversified Financials, Capgemini and Janet Pope, North America Corporate Responsibility Director, Capgemini North America.
