What CFA Provides the Industry 

CFA Membership will keep you connected, educated, & informed in the asset-based lending and factoring industries 

National Membership
National Membership in CFA is available for organizations who are actively engaged in secured lending.  One membership will bring member benefits to all your employees.  In addition, CFA regional chapters offer individual membership for lenders, factors, and service providers.

Chapter Membership
Chapter Membership in CFA is available to individuals.  If you work for a lender, then we ask that your organization be a National Member before you join the local chapter. If your employer has a National CFA Membership, you can become a member of your local Regional CFA Chapter.

For more information about a CFA National Membership, please contact:
