ELFA Announces 2021 Winner of Advocacy Champions Award

October 27, 2021, 07:10 AM

The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association announced that the winner of its Advocacy Champions Award for 2021 is the Bank Business Council Steering Committee. The award recognizes the Business Council Steering Committee (BCSC) that is most engaged with ELFA advocacy initiatives throughout the year. The Bank BCSC Chair Ernest Tsorvas accepted the Advocacy Champions cup on behalf of the committee at the general session during the 60th ELFA Annual Convention in San Antonio, TX.

ELFA’s Federal Advocacy team created the Advocacy Champions Award to encourage member participation in the association’s advocacy programming. The award is a competition among the association’s five BCSCs, which represent the various segments of membership: Bank, Captive and Vendor Finance, Independent, Service Providers and Small Ticket. ELFA members earn points for their respective Business Council when they participate in the association’s annual Capitol Connections event, when their company hosts an in-district visit with a member of Congress, and when they reach their prior authorization goal for LeasePAC, ELFA’s political action committee.

The Bank BCSC was recognized for having the highest level of participation in 2021. They had more than 40 members participate in Capitol Connections, where they met virtually with elected officials and brought important industry issues to the forefront. In addition, the committee reached its prior authorization goal for LeasePAC.

“Advocacy is a cornerstone of ELFA’s mission, and we are excited to celebrate members’ contributions to our advocacy program,” said ELFA President and CEO Ralph Petta. “The Bank BCSC’s award-winning participation is a testament to their commitment to educating policymakers about the importance of the equipment finance industry and the role it plays in the U.S. economy. We are excited to see this program grow over time as we encourage even more members to get involved.”
