TO 1895 


The Federation of Credit and Financial Professionals (FCFP) is one of the the oldest business credit associations in the United States. We were formed in New York City in 1895, known as the New York Credit Men's Association. We've come a long way in the evolution of business in New York,the Northeast, and now Nationally.


Here's a glimpse of our earliest networking events:



 The 2000's

Fast forward to 2001 when the NY Credit Men's Association, this time known as the New York Credit and Financial Management Association (NACM of New York) found itself struggling financially, and looking for a way to preserve its members and credit groups. The Smyyth companies purchased the credit groups, paid off the debts, and renamed the association what you know it as today, The Federation of Credit and Financial Professionals (FCFP)

FCFP acquired the credit groups and businesses of the Mid-Atlantic NACM chapter in 2005, and our presence in the Northeast grew considerably.

In 2015, FCFP acquired the remaining credit groups that were part of the highly respected Bernard Sands Credit Consultants. This coincided with FCFP becoming a National Independent Association, no longer affiliated with NACM.



We are now a non-profit, National Independent Organization serving the education and training needs of more than 2,000 credit, collection, and financial professionals representing diverse segments of the economy, including manufacturing, consumer goods, healthcare, distribution, construction and financial businesses.

Our mission is to be your primary resource for information on Credit, Collections, Accounts Receivable, best practices and technologies. 

FCFP members have access to a variety of educational opportunities that provide continuing education units (CEU's). We also provide means to network with peers and raise the visibility of the order to cash professional.
