AFSA’s Legal & Regulatory Affairs Department deals with all aspects of the legal environment facing the industry, including legislative issues and regulatory matters.
The AFSA Law Committee
The Law Committee helps to create and develop AFSA’s judicial, legislative and regulatory policies and strategies that affect AFSA member companies. Among the benefits of participation in the Law Committee are remaining up-to-date on issues that confront member companies each day, opportunities to network, and exchange ideas with other in-house counsel in the industry. General counsels or designees of AFSA Members who are licensed attorneys at law qualified to practice law in any federal or state jurisdiction are eligible for membership. Law Committee members may access resources via their profile page.
The Law Committee also has six subcommittees: Vehicle Finance, Payment Card, Emerging Issues, Mortgage Lending, Personal Loan and Litigation. The Law Committee Chair appoints a Chair and Vice Chair for each Subcommittee. The Litigation Subcommittee is chaired by the Law Committee Vice-Chair. The committee holds three in-person meetings and conference calls on an as-needed basis. One meeting is held in conjunction with AFSA’s Annual Meeting in the fall.
