American Financial Services Association (AFSA)
The American Financial Services Association (AFSA), based in Washington, D.C., is the national trade association for the consumer credit and finance industry. Founded in 1916, AFSA has a broad membership, ranging from large national financial services firms to single office, independently owned consumer finance companies. AFSA represents financial services companies that hold a leadership position in their markets and conform to the highest standards of customer service and ethical business practices. Although it is diverse, AFSA’s membership is united by its main goal of serving the credit needs of consumers and businesses.

California Financial Services Association (CFSA) The California Financial Services Association (CFSA) is a non-profit trade association representing major national and international corporations and independent lenders with operations in the State of California to provide a broad range of financial services, including consumer and commercial loans, retail installment financing, automobile and mobile home financing, home purchase and home equity loans, credit cards, and lines of credit. Our knowledgeable lobbyists, a committee of legal counselors, and public relations experts act as liaisons between the finance industry and decision-makers in California.

CFSA's mission is to foster ethical practices and high standards of conduct in the finance industry. The goal is to improve conditions within the industry and promote a greater knowledge and understanding of the economic and social aspects of consumer lending to all Californians, with an emphasis on the California Legislature and regulatory bodies. Since members represent a unified force of finance lenders, this helps bolster the message of the industry and provides individual companies with a voice in the lawmaking process they might not otherwise enjoy.
