AFSA Business Partners are companies that provide products and services to consumer or commercial finance companies and banks. To be eligible for membership as as business partner, companies must be in business for at least one year and approved by the AFSA Board of Directors.
NOTE: A company may not join solely as a business partner if it qualifies as an active  member (consumer credit and finance companies). However, active member subsidiaries that are suppliers to the industry may join as business partners at a significant discount.
AFSA values business partners and provides them with total access to key decision makers and information about the industry.
As experts in the products and services they offer, AFSA’s business partners play an important role in working with AFSA on special projects, serving on committees and boards, helping to develop conferences and serve as important resources to the association and its members.
