Education, as part of the mission of NEFA was always important to Chris Walker; as a NEFA Member and Member of
NEFA's Board of Directors; as a personal friend and mentor to many
throughout the industry; and as an advocate for all the best our
industry has to offer in general.
When Chris passed away in 2011, many NEFA Members and other industry professionals wanted some way they could make a donation to honor and continue Chris’ great service to this industry, resulting in the creation within NEFA of the Chris Walker Education Fund.
In the spirit of Chris Walker’s passion for education and his embrace of all efforts and opportunities that supported it, the Chris Walker Education Fund will be used to further the education and professional development mission of NEFA both within the Association and beyond it.
The National Equipment Finance Association (NEFA) is a nonprofit trade association created to represent the equipment leasing and finance industry throughout North America by providing a forum for personal and professional growth through Community, Education and Professionalism.
