About SoCal AFP
The Southern California AFP (SoCal AFP), founded in 1975 as the Cash Management Association of Southern California, is a professional
association serving financial professionals in Southern California. SoCal AFP is affiliated with the Association for Financial
Professionals (AFP), based in Bethesda, Maryland. We are one of sixty-four regional associations that support AFP’s mission across the
United States, Puerto Rico and Canada to increase the stature of the finance and treasury profession. Our members include a variety of
levels from the finance area from Fortune 500 companies, mid-size companies, international firms as well as representation from all
major and mid-sized banking and financial institutions from California and across the country. AFP credentials are recognized worldwide
as the leading benchmark of competency in the finance industry.
Our mission is to provide educational and career development opportunities and an interactive forum for the exchange of ideas. SoCal
AFP holds monthly meetings and webinars throughout Southern California that provide continuing education on the latest and evolving
world of treasury and finance. Our educational meetings and webinars provide the opportunity to meet and network with colleagues and
peers – perhaps one of the most important activities you can do as a financial professional. Renewal credits can be earned for
membership, attendance at meetings as well as serving on a committee.
SoCal AFP hosts an annual two-day SoCal EXPO that provides the opportunity to attend educational sessions that will bring you valuable
information on the latest topics in treasury and finance in addition to the many financial services provided by Banks, non-bank
Financial Institutions and other third party providers of financial services to businesses and corporations. You can earn up to 12
