Committees play vital role for association

The Business Council Steering Committees are the association’s primary constituent bodies and are an integral part of the ELFA’s operations, providing critical input on the direction of the association and serving as a bridge between the membership and the Board of Directors and staff.

Each committee analyzes the needs of companies in the segment it represents and recommends to the Board of Directors how to meet those needs. The committee members are elected by the Business Council membership for a term of two years on a staggered basis.
