It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Elaine Litwer over the weekend. Elaine was the long-time Legislative Council to the National Vehicle Leasing Association, and worked tirelessly for the good of the association and the automobile leasing industry. She will be remembered for the many legislative triumphs for which she was responsible and her recent work that enabled the CVLE program to once again prosper. 

Services will be held on Wednesday, April 8, 2009, at 10:00 a.m., at Beth Shalom Memorial Chapel, 760 Smithtown ByPass, Smithtown, N.Y. 11787, (631) 360-1600. 

No flowers please. Contributions, if you so desire, can be made to Elaine's favorite charity: The Grand Street Settlement, Attn: Development Dept., 80 Pitt Street, New York, New York 10002.
