What is a CFDD chapter?

A Credit Financial Development Division (CFDD) chapter is a group of credit professionals from a particular area who are current members of NACM seeking to learn, network, and share experiences with colleagues. 

CFDD's Objectives

  • Promote the interests of credit professionals.
  • Foster credit management as a career.
  • Encourage education in credit work.
  • Discuss problems affecting credit and allied subjects.
  • Build confidence in business relations.
  • Cooperate and fraternize with other credit professionals.
  • Work with civic and national bodies.
  • Make genuine friends among those in credit work.

CFDD’s Purpose

CFDD aims to encourage a high level of participation in the National Association of Credit Management and its local affiliates. CFDD also encourages professional development and continued education for chapter members. CFDD has enabled many members to achieve distinction and earn high executive positions in their organizations. Membership in CFDD is loaded with benefits and opportunities, and provides all the broadening influences which are inherent in a national business organization.


If your firm is a member of the National Association of Credit Management, and you are working in the field of credit, you are eligible to join a CFDD chapter.

Opportunities for Credit Education

Credit is a career with limitless possibilities and exciting changes. To help credit professionals meet the challenges of their field, CFDD offers scholarships for a variety of educational programs and conferences. 

Meetings and Conferences

Local meetings, state and regional conferences, and the National Credit Congress provide members the opportunity to participate in relevant business forums and meet with knowledgeable leaders of the business, academic, and political communities.

Valuable Personal Contacts

Developing personal contacts with other credit professionals is another benefit of CFDD. These friendships can be extremely beneficial, allowing for a reliable exchange of credit information to help you form the basis for profitable credit decisions.
