NEFA’s Funding Symposium: "Lassoing Opportunities for Success"

September 11, 2023, 07:20 AM

The National Equipment Finance Association (NEFA) announced its highly anticipated Funding Symposium, themed "Lassoing Opportunities for Success." This premier event in the equipment finance industry will take place from Oct. 3 to Oct. 6, 2023, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa in beautiful San Antonio, TX.

Keynote Speaker Calvin Stovall, CEO of Iconic Presentations, LLC, will inspire and empower attendees with his remarkable insights on leadership, innovation, and harnessing opportunities for success. Stovall's dynamic and engaging presentation promises to be a highlight of the symposium.

One exciting element of this year's Symposium is the "Texas Tailgate & Hold'em Charity Tournament," hosted by the NEFA Philanthropy Committee. Taking place on Tuesday, Oct. 3, this charity event will blend Texan flair with philanthropic spirit. Attendees can enjoy a lively evening of yard games, Texas-style tailgating and participate in a thrilling Texas Hold'em poker tournament, all while contributing to two deserving causes: The National Lymphedema Network and the Indy Foundation.

On Thursday, Oct. 5, NEFA invites attendees to join "The NEFA Roundup," a special fundraiser for the Chris Walker Education Fund. This unforgettable evening will feature delectable food and beverages, a live band, and even armadillo races, providing a fun and memorable experience for all. All proceeds from "The NEFA Roundup" will support the Chris Walker Education Fund, furthering NEFA's commitment to education and industry growth.

NEFA CEO Chad Sluss expressed enthusiasm for this year's symposium, saying, "Our Funding Symposium is the hallmark of the equipment finance industry, and this year's theme emphasizes seizing the opportunities that lie ahead. We are equally thrilled to host the Texas Tailgate & Hold'em Charity Tournament and The NEFA Roundup, where we can come together as an industry to make a meaningful impact."
