These initiatives include representation on Capitol Hill and in state capitals; outreach and engagement with regulatory agencies; conferences and forums focused on the industry; and proactive media relations programs. As a result of these initiatives, AFSA provides its members a forum for analysis and response to regulatory and legislative issues through awareness, education and the exchange of ideas relevant to providing access to credit in the vehicle finance industry. The division includes over 90 companies including: captive vehicle finance companies; auto finance subsidiaries of banks; independent auto finance companies and dealer finance companies – retail and wholesale.
