CFSA provides knowledgeable lobbyists, a committee of legal counselors, and public relations experts who act as liaisons between the consumer finance industry and California's legislative and regulatory agencies. A major service to its members is its active participation in the legislative process, working to ensure that licensed lenders are equally represented where legislative and regulatory matters are concerned. This service is particularly helpful to independent lenders who might not otherwise have the resources to fund these activities on their own. Outstanding communications to members are provided through alerts, periodic publications, and legislative materials that cover various topics, and present information regarding bills before the legislature that impact the finance industry.
Our Independent Section also provides educational employee training programs for our member companies. These training seminars cover such subjects as collection practices, sales and marketing, underwriting, ethics, small claims, Insurance products and management skills. The owners of Independent member companies conduct workshops to help our member companies deal with changing economic conditions and operating environments.
