Our many moving parts

By Norman Chambers, managing director

So far this year, we have staged 15 Member and Patron events with over 400 attendees. Such events range from GDPR compliance workshops to sector-specific roundtable regional days and a successful Patrons Day too.

Upcoming events
We are also very pleased to announce that early bird registration has now opened for the NACFB Commercial Finance Expo 2018. The biggest industry event of the year returns to the NEC on 20th June and I would encourage you to register online here today.

Outside of our annual Expo, our events calendar for 2018 continues to fill. This year we are staging more events and workshops than ever before. I was pleased with the strong turnout at last month’s Bridging Finance Day – the first in our sector-specific events.

Our aim is to develop an environment that establishes a centre of excellence across all commercial finance divisions. These bespoke sector days will be taking place over the coming months with a dedicated Development Finance Day in Birmingham and an Asset Finance Day in Nottingham.

Each event will feature roundtable sessions with up to six lenders, a complimentary compliance workshop, as well as news and updates from the sector. They offer a fantastic opportunity to learn about the latest services and products on offer.

Get the most from your membership
You can register for NACFB Compliance support today here, and you can register for MyNACFB here. I encourage all NACFB Members to make full use of these membership offerings. If you haven’t already, please do read Graham Toy’s feature in last month’s NACFB Magazine, providing more information on the positive changes here at your trade association.

Since launching NACFB Compliance in 2017, many Members have already benefited from access to over 50 template documents from our online model office, training and education from our compliance team, as well as bespoke support for more specific regulatory matters.

Additional Member benefits – free online magazines
Moneyfacts Group is the UK’s leading provider of financial product data. Their publication, Business Moneyfacts, is a complete guide to business finance products for the commercial finance professional and is now available for free to all NACFB Members.

To access your free online magazines, NACFB Members can sign up here.

Once again, I encourage all NACFB Members to get the most from their membership. If you would like more information on how you can access all the benefits that come with NACFB membership, please don’t hesitate to call our office on 020 7101 0359.

I look forward to seeing you at some point in 2018.
