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 hold monthly meetings in Seattle from September through May which cover a variety of topics in the treasury and finance fields. Please join us Thursday, November 21th, 2019 for our next monthly meeting at Washington Athletic Club. Registration and networking begin at 11am, program starts at 11:30am and concludes at 1pm. The presentation topic is Payment and Processing Fraud. The meeting and lunch are included in the annual membership. Non-members pay the guest price of $75.  Please click here.
