What Members Are Saying About NEFA
"I was drawn to join NEFA for several different reasons. First and foremost, I felt like NEFA was geared more toward the educational development of its membership. In today’s tough marketplace only the well informed, well educated will succeed. I have been thoroughly impressed with the leadership of this organization and look forward to both the national and local networking events."

Arvest Equipment Finance
"Belonging to the NEFA is the best investment I have ever made, not only for my company, but for my professional development as well. Through my work on various committees, I have found that the true value of NEFA membership is realized in the close working relationships I have successfully established with other equipment finance professionals. These are relationships I would have never expected, including a new division of my company and a new partner in my business. If you put a lot into the organization it gives back in multiples!"

"As a new business owner and new to the scene, joining NEFA is just what I needed.
I purchased AMA from long time owner. Although AMA is pretty well known, I knew no one. After the Dallas conference, I felt a part of a great organization. Not only have I gained new clients, I am forming new friendships in the industry. I look forward to becoming more involved with NEFA and learning how AMA can help other members with their appraisal, recovery and remarketing needs."

I believe our membership tells other’s that we care about the industry in which we have chosen to make our careers, and we subscribe to honest and ethical business dealings with our customers and colleagues. As we regain business momentum, the Association will play an even bigger role in representing the interests of our industry and providing its members the resources, education and networking opportunities to be successful and thrive in the new business environment that is being created."

"During times of uncertainty it is more important than ever to associate yourself with the best and brightest in order to share information and make the right connections that will help your business thrive in tough times. ENvision Capital Group has been a member of the NEFA since its inception and we continue our membership and attend spring and fall conference because we find that best in class lenders and service providers are found in this forum. Additionally, the resources available plus the knowledge, skills, and abilities that are contained amongst the membership are hard to find elsewhere and deliver real returns for the money and time invested."

"Whether it is scheduled programs or informal discussions there is always opportunity to learn at a NEFA event. Regional events provide easy access to members and prospective members; usually in a great locale. I highly recommend the Regional events as it is a great way to stay connected at a reasonable cost and a facility for members to get involved."
Jim Merrilees, CLP
"The NEFA has so much to offer its members, from the outstanding educational sessions at seasonal conferences, to the exciting regional meetings where the networking is unbeatable. Some of my best memories in the industry have occurred at one of these events, and I always look forward to attending the next one. Every dollar invested is returned and then some."
