Benefits of Membership

 

By joining CAFBA you become a member of the peak professional industry body for Commercial and Asset Finance Brokers in Australia.

CAFBA membership confirms that our members adhere to an industry code of practice which sets high professional and ethical standards and demonstrates your integrity, commitment to professionalism and ongoing professional development – qualities your clients look for.

CAFBA is supported by financiers in our industry that are affiliate members. These Financiers actively encourage (and most require) that Commercial and Asset Finance Brokers be a member of a professional industry body. They are secure in the knowledge CAFBA members have complied with the CAFBA membership joining requirements and adhere to ongoing membership obligations including continuing professional development.

Being a CAFBA member means that you become part of a self-regulating industry body that proactively advocates with Government and Legislators on issues that directly affect you and your clients.

As a CAFBA member you will have access to:

  • education programs that have been specifically tailored for the Commercial and Asset Finance Industry; 

  • regular monthly communication via email from CAFBA on issues that impact you and your clients through the publication “Commercial Insider”:

  • professional development days during each year held in QLD, NSW, VIC and WA;

  • the prestigious awards and gala dinner (held annually in a capital city of Australia);

  • annual golf days (held in NSW and VIC); and

  • calendar year end functions held in QLD, NSW, VIC and WA;

Other benefits include:

  • access to Professional Indemnity Insurance through CAFBA’s Insurance partner

  • CAFBA members are located on the CAFBA website with member firms benefitting from their own web page.

  • CAFBA members have access to a Members area of the CAFBA website. This allows the ability to record Continuing Professional Development information and contains helpful and industry specific information not available to the general public.
