Ethical F&I Managers Conference 2021

Dealers Resource Center is run by car guys and we know how important a reliable service contract can be. We care deeply about the products we offer dealers and the drivers who buy their cars.  We face the same dilemmas everyone in the F&I field does–how to provide service contracts that increase our clients’ sales and support the buyers if something goes wrong.

That’s why we’re attending the Ethical F&I Managers Conference at the Embassy Suites in Denver on September 21st -22nd.  The Ethical F&I Managers Conference is the only conference dedicated to the advancement of ethical practices that both benefit those in the F&I business and the customers they serve.

We believe EFI’s mission statement reflects our own values as a company that is focused on keeping our promise to provide the best service possible at all times.

The Ethical F&I (EFI) managers group seeks to provide the F&I industry with a forum that is “for F&I, by F&I.”

Our ultimate goal is to elevate the overall professionalism of the industry, provide support and continual growth for the industry, and empower those in the profession to perform efficiently, successfully, and with the utmost adherence to compliance standards.
