The Northwest Association for Financial Professionals (NWAFP) is a local networking group of experienced financial professionals navigating the issues facing the treasury field today. Our organization has been supporting the Puget Sound region for over 30 years.

We provide a forum for members to increase their professional skills and enhance the recognition of the treasury management profession. The NWAFP is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing: educational programs, networking opportunities and updated information on industry standards and legislation. We are comprised of representatives from leading companies and financial institutions throughout Puget Sound.


We typically hold monthly meetings in Seattle from September through May which cover a variety of topics in the treasury and finance fields. Due to COVID-19, all events will be held via ZOOM through December 2021.  Please see EVENTS, starting mid August, for more information on meetings for our new season starting in September 2021.


The volunteer Board of Directors of the NWAFP is responsible for operation and strategic direction of the association. The board serves a two-year term, with approximately half standing election each year.
