AFSA Launches New Website December 10, 2015 Today, the American Financial Services Association (AFSA) is launching a completely redesigned website at afsaonline.org. The new website, designed in partnership with Engage Software headquartered in St. Louis, has a modern design and is constructed to be user friendly. AFSA's goal is to develop a site that will become the go-to source for consumer finance news, updates, and knowledge. AFSA members are encouraged to begin exploring the redesigned space. They can: Stay current with Federal initiatives through recent legislation and testimony, research compliance and legal issues. Research state initiatives using AFSA*Track; direct advocacy; Access resources such as white papers, briefs, and AFSA’s talking points, both at the state and federal level. Explore how to "Get Involved" by attending events, participating on committees or sections/divisions, advertising with AFSA, sponsoring an event, or finding a fellow member. Learn about AFSA University, Branch Operations Basics (BOB), Webinars, AWARE, MoneySkill, The Edge, Leadership Development at UNC, and the AFSA Education Foundation. Members can manage their personal profile to update contact information, manage contacts within their company, access committee areas, and view historical purchases. Take advantage of AFSA’s online Buyers Guide to find relevant products and services provided by AFSA’s business partners. AFSA also will be launching redesigned websites for all of its conferences, including the Vehicle Finance Conference and Expo, the Independents Conference and Expo, the Credit Summit for Fixed Income Investors, the State Government Affairs Forum, and Annual Meeting. The Vehicle Finance Conference and Expo website is currently live and is being updated with the latest information about the March 29-31, 2016 conference in Las Vegas. The AFSA Education Foundation and MoneySKILL websites also will be updated in early 2016. AFSA will be transitioning its systems through Friday, December 11, so AFSA members should expect some periodic outages.
