Joining a committee is a great way to connect with like-minded members, lend your voice and expertise to an industry initiative, and increase your exposure. You’ll make SFNet better for our entire secured lending community.

The mission of SFNet's committees is to look at issues in special interest areas, to provide guidance to SFNet, and to assist the organization in formulating products, services or advocacy positions for the greater good of SFnet members and the industry at large. Active member participation on a committee is necessary to accomplish each committee’s mission. Committees typically meet via phone calls throughout the year at the discretion of the committee Chairperson. There may be cases where committees meet face-to-face at the discretion of the Chairperson.
