Vehicle Finance Division Board

The AFSA Vehicle Finance Division supports member companies involved in the indirect financing and leasing of new and used vehicles through various initiatives at the federal and state levels. 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. An Advisory Board of top management from vehicle finance companies ensures that the division stays focused on issues of critical importance to members.
