Industry Future Council

The Industry Future Council (IFC) is comprised of a cross-section of selected industry executives. The IFC participants explore current issues, trends, and the outlook for the future of the equipment finance industry. The IFC convenes throughout the year to discuss major issues and to provide insights for how potential opportunities and challenges may impact the industry's long-term vitality.

The IFC met virtually in October of 2020 to reevaluate the effects of COVID-19 on the industry. Access this slide deck for a refresher on the focus of each workgroup, their individual responses during the group exercise, as well blank worksheets for you to complete each exercise with your own company.
