The National Automotive Finance (NAF) Association is the only forum for the exclusive benefit of the non-prime auto finance industry, addressing the challenges of sales finance companies, dealers, and third-party service providers.
Members include companies engaged in indirect and direct below-prime auto financing, auto dealers, and companies interested in furthering the goals of the NAF Association.
Full membership is open to companies that actively engage in indirect and direct below-prime auto financing and to auto dealers. These members have full voting rights and may serve on the board of directors.
Associate membership is open to organizations or individuals who have an interest in furthering the goals of the association but are not financing sources. Associates enjoy most of the benefits of membership but may not vote or serve as voting members of the board of directors.
The National Automotive Finance Association will lead the way in building a forum of transparency and trust for all industry stakeholders: lenders, dealers, suppliers, shareholders, and regulators. We will set the standard in cooperation and collaboration that results in an industry that produces transparent and fair finance solutions that inspire consumers to purchase automobiles.
The National Automotive Finance Association believes that every consumer with the desire and means to purchase a vehicle should have fair, responsible, and reasonable access to automotive financing. We believe that a healthy and sustainable non-prime automotive marketplace is driven by ethical and responsible practices. The National Automotive Finance Association is the advocate and the voice for these practices.
The National Automotive Finance Association is an organization that is open to all people. We welcome and value individuals of all age, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, ability, sexual orientation, financial circumstance, or thought. We are committed to embracing diversity, and we feel strongly that it reflects the people and needs of our industry.
