Affiliate Membership

Affiliate membership is available to state financial services trade associations, whose member companies are engaged in the extension of consumer credit and support the mission and goals of AFSA. Affiliate membership in AFSA does not qualify the members of the organization to receive individual company member benefits. This also includes accredited consumer credit counseling agencies.

What is the Cost to Join?

$395 per association. Dues are paid on a calendar year, January through December. For more information or to apply, send the Affiliate Membership Application to Sheilah Harrison, Vice President, Member Services.
