It is with heartfelt sympathy that we announce the passing of Alan Elkin, founder of Advance Business Systems and founding member of the Hunt Valley Business Forum.
Alan was very instrumental in establishing the Hunt Valley Business Forum (HVBF). He served as an active board member since the HVBF’s inception, until 2014. Alan and his wife, Lois Elkin, were strong supporters of the HVBF and attended most events together. In 2012, the Hunt Valley Business Forum honored Alan as the HVBF's Business Person of the Year at our annual meeting. Alan, Lois and their son, Jeff Elkin, continue to support the HVBF, and most recently were one of our sponsors of our 2017 Annual Breakfast.
Alan was an exceptional person and his contributions to the HVBF have helped mold the organization into what it is today. Our thoughts and prayers with him and his family. He will be greatly missed!
