Prospective Members

Membership_Video_-_Video_Thumnail.pngAACFB is the premier trade association empowering the independent commercial financing professional and providing direct access to their funding source partners. We represent an estimated $12 billion worth of origination and transaction placement.

Founded in 1990 and led by experienced commercial financing professionals, AACFB is an innovative association with the largest active membership in the industry. Many dedicated professionals volunteer their time to serve on our committees, a great way to give back to the industry. AACFB is governed by members and supported by a professional staff. Our Board is elected annually and works to meet members' needs.

AACFB is constantly developing programs and opportunities to advance the level of knowledge about the practice of equipment leasing, while encouraging members to implement ethical disciplines. In support of higher standards of professionalism within our ranks, we have established an Ethics Program intended to resolve ethics disputes by providing a confidential forum to resolve disputes. If any member believes that another member has violated the AACFB Code of Ethics in their business dealings with each other, that member is entitled to have his complaint heard to resolution. These activities are core to AACFB's mission.
