NEFA Baltimore Crab Feast Returns as In-person Gathering of Industry Professionals

The annual NEFA Baltimore Crab Feast returned as one of the first in-person gatherings of industry professionals.

Board Member Scott A. Wheeler, CLFP, Wheeler Business Consulting, LLC, said: “It was refreshing to be back to normal - shaking hands and engaging with old friends and new NEFA members. When the association first started planning the event back in February, there were still many uncertainties. Baltimore restaurants were under restrictive measures, most regular participants in the event had yet to be vaccinated, and business travel for many companies was restricted. However, the stars began to align and over 50 professionals came together for an evening of networking, crabs, beer, and wine.”

This annual industry tradition has been ongoing for several decades and the 2021 event was one of the best. The consensus was that business activity is strong and expected to remain robust for the foreseeable future. NEFA’s next in-person event is June 16 in Minneapolis followed by several additional regional events later in the summer, and the annual Funding Symposium October 12-15 in Charlotte, NC.
