The Commercial Finance Association (CFA) will hold its 70th Annual Convention this Wednesday, November 12 through Friday, November 14 in Washington DC. Dr. Ben Bernanke, Former Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve will be the keynote speaker during the general session, and Sallie Krawcheck, one of the top women in the commercial finance industry, will speak during the Women In Commercial Finance Committee reception.
Over 1000 senior commercial finance professionals have registered to attend the three-day convention, whose theme is “Turning Insights Into Opportunities”, that will include several opportunities to network as well as numerous panel discussions featuring industry thought leaders speaking on timely, hot-button issues. Convention attendees will hear presentations about the state of the secured lending markets, the outlook for the 2015 global economy and new technologies affecting the industry.
“CFA members provide capital to businesses that sustain millions of jobs at low risk to the banking system. So our annual convention is an incredible opportunity for them to get together and take advantage of world-class networking opportunities, to meet their colleagues as well as future business partners. It truly brings the best and the brightest in our industry together. This year is particularly special as we celebrate our 70th anniversary. We’ll take a look back at how the CFA has consistently turned insights into opportunities for our members. And, we’ll have several discussions about what the future holds,” said Bob Trojan, Chief Executive Officer of the CFA.
Panel discussions will include two “A View From The Top” sessions in which heads of both large and entrepreneurial commercial finance firms will discuss how current market conditions have shaped their strategies and influenced their business plans as well as the impact the current regulatory environment has had on the industry, and their expectations for the future.
