A Letter from the Chair

On behalf of the 2019 AACFB Commercial Financing Expo Planning Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to join us in Orlando, Florida this September 19-20 for this exceptional event. The Gaylord Palms Resort will serve as the perfect backdrop for some of the best education and networking in the commercial financing industry.

The AACFB has a history of providing outstanding events that bring people together. Attendees will ENGAGE with a wide array of industry topics, CONNECT with colleagues and GROW their businesses and professional networks. 

While collaborating with a stellar group of individuals during the planning of this event, I was reminded of a gentleman I met at an industry show many years ago. By meeting in person, we were able to develop a rapport and a trust that endures to this day. That one chance meeting of this individual has led to doing over one hundred million dollars in business over time, despite the fact that he has worked for several different companies during that span. That first introduction set the wheels in motion for a business relationship that would benefit us both greatly over our careers and it all started at an industry event.

My experience has taught me to never underestimate the value of making that human connection - a handshake, looking someone in the eye, building trust. People want to do business with people they like and trust so I encourage you to make plans now to attend this year's AACFB Commercial Financing Expo to start making those vital connections that will pay dividends long after your flight home.

See you there!
