About Membership

Bringing Together the Resources That Make Capital Work
The Commercial Finance Association strives to be the essential community for all organizations and professionals who deliver and enable commercial finance. With nearly 250 member companies and a 20,000-person active community including 22 chapters located throughout the United States, Canada and Europe, we continue to broaden our reach and impact. We further engage the international community through our active work with the United Nations, World Bank, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the Organization of American States (OAS).

Who can join?
Association membership is available to both lenders and service providers who enable commercial lending. Membership is at the company level (all employees of member companies are eligible for association benefits). Proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies, corporations and other business entities engaged in secured commercial lending, factoring, accounts receivable discounting or other forms of secured commercial finance are eligible for membership.

Chapter membership is separate from national membership. Please see specific regional chapter sites for details.

How does my company become a member?
Organizations interested in membership should reach out to James Kravitz, Business Development Director, at (646) 839-6080 or jkravitz@cfa.com. Each application for membership must be made in writing and contain an acknowledgment that the applicant has received and agrees to be bound by the by-laws of the association and any standards of conduct adopted by the Board of Directors. 

With membership, you'll gain access to a variety of benefits provided with your company in mind.




“For us, CFA is much more than a trade association. It’s a critical hub  of relationships that keep our company moving forward.”
