Business Partner Membership Benefits


AFSA members want to do business with companies that support their trade association

Corporate membership as a Business Partner is available to companies that provide products and services to consumer or commercial finance companies and banks.

Companies must be in business for at least one year and approved by the AFSA Board of Directors. A company may not join as a Business Partner if they qualify for membership as a consumer or commercial lender. When approved, you will receive a form to complete to be listed in the Online Resource Directory which is included with your membership.

Complete this application form and return to Jenny Bengtson or mail with your payment to:

AFSA Membership Department
919 Eighteenth Street, NW, Suite 300
Washington, DC 20006-5517
