About CFDD Kansas City

We are the Credit & Financial Development Division (CFDD) Kansas City Chapter of the National Association of Credit Management. We have been providing education and scholarships for commercial credit managers in the Kansas City area since 1929.

We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month except December. At each meeting we start with networking, followed by dinner, then education provided by speakers that address current topics of interest to practicing credit managers.

All educational events are eligible for continuing education units.
