From Jason Anish, CFCC President,
It is an honor to take on the role as President of the California chapter of the Commercial Finance Association (“CFCC”). It is humbling to be in the company of many esteemed colleagues who have previously held this position. I will carry on the commitment of my predecessors of continuing to build and strengthening our association’s capabilities.
On behalf of the CFCC’s Board of Directors, it is important to express our sincere appreciation to our sponsors, members, and the community, especially the business community, and organizations for your continued support.
It is also important to take a moment and express our sincere appreciation to our board, who selflessly give of their time and work tirelessly for the benefit of our industry. The commitment of a board member brings with it a dedication of time and energy, and a desire to fulfill a shared mission. We are grateful for your efforts and support of the success of our association.
Though I’ve been involved with the CFCC for many years, I began serving on the board in 2005. It was during this time that I experienced the breadth of the CFCC’s reach and its impact on our industry. As a board member I made it my goal to take on a more active role and help drive the organization to create more meaningful networking events that maximize member value. From 2014 to 2017, I was the acting Treasurer, a role that I believe helped shape my understanding of the inner workings of the organization.
Over the years the CFCC has played an instrumental role in the financial services community by steering committee members to be more socially responsible, promoting the continued development of the asset-based financial services industry, and bringing industry leaders together to bridge the gap on best practices and the discussion of new developments in our trade. But our work doesn’t stop there, as we have a responsibility to do more for our members. We must keep pushing the envelope and as the landscape of our industry continues to evolve, our committee and event chairs are determined in creating innovative and energizing experiences for our community members. With that goal in mind, we’ve planned a number of events and educational panels in the coming year that will cover a range of topics and important issues facing the financial services industry. Please visit our website to see a calendar of events for networking and educational opportunities in 2018 (link).
As President, my priority will be to challenge our board to find new ways to boost member engagement and encourage participation, expand the makeup and diversity of our membership & board, and improve our foothold in the finance community as a top networking and educational organization.
We encourage you to join us at our networking and educational events and look forward to hearing your ideas about how we can build on our accomplishments and improve our organization to better serve you.
President of the Commercial Finance Conference of California
