About Us

We are the Southwest Chapter of the Commercial Finance Association (CFA), an international trade association dedicated to the asset-based lending and factoring industries.  CFA's national headquarters are in New York City.

The Southwest Chapter is a regional organization with approximately 100 dues paying members and friends.  Our goal is to serve our members by providing informative programs while also providing a pleasant forum for networking among their peers.

The CFA SW chapter is proud to support the SM Wright Foundation, which is an amazing organization serving and empowering underprivileged families in the Dallas community for the last 15 years.  Through food, clothing, household items (including beds for children and furniture for the family), education and so much more, the S. M. Wright foundation is a tremendous force for good and hope in our community. Please visit the SM Wright Foundation website to learn more about this non-profit organization.
