The following is an edited transcript of a conversation with LeVan Ellis:
What made you join the NFSA?
"Seeing my manager at the time, Don Scott, and other managers, which were leaders in the industry, Robert Gilmore, Mack Hall, Nathan Edwards, Joe Edge, and others join together to fight a common cause to save the industry. When I saw and understood what my manager was doing I wanted to do my part."
What is your role at the NFSA?
"I am one of the Vice Presidents along with John Nelson. I am on the executive board and the nominating committee and assess where I am needed."
What do you feel are the biggest obstacles that the NFSA faces today and what are your plans to alleviate those problems?
"I believe the biggest obstacles are the negative things that are put on the Internet about our industry that give a bad look at what good the industry does and can do for those who wise to make it a career. This industry provides jobs, careers, and changes people’s lives. I intend to join forces with other NFSA members and fight to save what has been taking care of our families and the families of others all these years."
Do you feel the NFSA has had a positive effect on the industry, if so why?
"I know the NFSA has a positive effect on the industry. It is like the pulse of what is going on around the country. Without the NFSA we would not have been able to gain the knowledge and experiences of those who came together like Don Scott, Robert Gilmore, Mack Hall, Nathan Edwards, Joe Edge, and others that laid the ground work of what could and should not be done in our industry. These were men that let us know that you could be successful if you work hard and give others a chance."
