State Government Affairs Committee

The State Government Affairs (SGA) Committee serves as a forum to address state legislative and regulatory issues that affect AFSA member companies. It comprises four subcommittees: Mortgage Lending/Servicing, Payment Card, Traditional Installment Lending, and Vehicle Finance. The Committee reviews legislation; analyzes legislative trends; gathers political intelligence; formulates strategy and issues management materials; identifies and recommends industry-wide positions on state legislation and regulatory issues; develops issues management materials to support state and local lobbying activities; and engages in direct advocacy where appropriate. The Committee holds in-person meetings three times a year.

Eligibility: AFSA members who participate in state legislative or regulatory activities.

Leadership: The Committee is governed by bylaws and annually elects a chairperson, a vice chair, and subcommittee chairs.
