The North Central NAFA chapter is proud to announce our December guest speaker, Mr. Michael A. Pitcher, former LeasePlan USA President and CEO. Mr. Pitcher is a passionate leader with over three decades of business success spanning three continents and in multiple industries. Michael believes that if you inspire people, share a vision that includes their personal development, and pay attention to the outside influences in your industry, then success will follow quickly. In 2016, Pitcher distilled his successful leadership principles into a book, Seven eLements of Leadership, which he identified as Laugh, Learn, Listen, Language, Lagniappe, Legacy and Love. He wrote that these seven elements are essential for success.   Join us as we hear first hand from Mr. Pitcher how leadership is no longer the private domain of corporate executives, civic leaders, and politicians. Leadership is practiced every day in small businesses, in classrooms, in local churches, on athletic fields, and yes, in homes. You will not want to miss this session if you’re a person who believes that leadership is about serving others, who care about developing themselves and bringing out the very best in everyone around them.
Charity Drive:  Kare11 Marine Toys for Tots
Please bring an unwrapped toy for the Kare11 “Toys For Tots” 2018 campaign for the kids in need.  Jacky and Jon will bring the toys to Kare11 for the drop off.  Let’s make this the biggest donation our chapter has ever done!

Message Board

To all the people who attended or contributed to the WI NAFA Chapter Golf Outing…….a huge THANK YOU !
The golf committee hopes you had a wonderful time networking with fellow  industry colleagues and catching up on life, both business and personal,  while getting a little golf in as well.
We know networking is the first step in a business relationship and so glad the WI Chapter of NAFA can bring us all together to have fun while we work.
Attached is the agenda flyer for the day.  If you did not pick one up, please look at all the various companies we need to thank and support because they supported us by funding various major aspects of the event, or bringing door prizes for all to win, or being there to golf.  This shows such great support from a wonderful group of people.
Next year the outing will be Tuesday July 17, 2018….THIS IS A WEEK LATER THAN WE NORMALLY HOLD THE OUTING!
Put it on your calendars now and we hope to see you at the 27th WI NAFA Chapter Golf Outing.
A heartfelt thank you to all of you!
