CLFP Member Celebration Day Held Across the U.S.

August 31, 2017, 07:06 AM

On August 24, 2017, Certified Lease & Finance Professionals (CLFPs) across the country gathered to celebrate their designation. The celebration kicked off earlier in the month when First American Equipment Finance prepared and served a meal at the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge.  Other events were held in Fort Smith, Houston, Bend, Milwaukee, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, and Walnut Creek on August 24th and one more celebration is scheduled for next month in Chicago, IL.

Joe Schmitz, CLFP, President at F.I.T. Leasing and Director of the CLFP Board of Directors stated, “We had an exciting CLFP Day in Southern California!  A mixed group of individuals from big and small companies came together to share stories, information and just plain have fun. Amy Spragg, CLFP President, gave some great information on the growth of the Foundation and the plans for the future. It was a wonderful time spent with some great people.”

Added Lisa Genereux, CLFP, Account Executive for Dell Financial Services, “It was a wonderful gathering with Portland-area CLFPs.  It’s a great event that I look forward to every year.”

The Foundation has added 88 CLFPs and Associates this year and there are still two Academies for Lease & Finance Professionals scheduled for 2017.  With 475 CLFPs and Associates, the Foundation’s membership will easily surpass 500 by the end of the year.

The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers, and peers in the equipment finance industry. There are currently 475 active Certified Lease & Finance Professionals and Associates throughout the world.
