Equipment Management Conference Recap
On February 26-28, 2017, the American Society of Appraisers participated at the 29th Annual Equipment Management Conference in Houston, Texas. This two-day event, hosted by the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (EFLA), offered astonishing sessions, off-site equipment tours, first class exhibitions, and unmatched networking opportunities.
Supported by an exceptionally strong roster of ASA speakers, this conference represented a unique platform where attendees were given the ability to evaluate portfolio quality and residual values on a variety of equipment segments. Speakers and sessions included Rae E. Buck, ASA with Corporate Aircraft Market Update and Forecast; Joseph M. Santora, ASA in Construction; Frederick L. Wetzel, ASA in Basics of Assets Management; Michael E. Winterfeld, ASA in Truck Trailer; and Kimberly A. Esposito, ASA, Eric Livingston, ASA, Christopher P. Nugent, ASA, Kevin J. Sensenbrenner, ASA, and Keith J. Weber, ASA as tour moderators. Prior to the conference ELFA partnered with ASA, an official provider of the Appraisal Foundation’s Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, and offered ELFA members a 7-hour USPAP preconference workshop instructed by David H. Cole, ASA.
ASA’s booth generated tremendous traffic thanks to the support of Jack Beckwith, ASA and David L. Helle, ASA . Beckwith and Helle gave ASA handouts, brochures, promotional items, and informed attendees about the Society’s Machinery & Technical Specialties education and accreditation programs. Both played a crucial role in representing ASA and explaining the importance of having the ASA designation. Because of their commitment and hard work, membership interest and inquiries have increased.
