Credit Discussion Groups
These meetings, which strictly follow anti-trust laws, encourage the building of relationships and networking with other group members. MFSG has been administering credit discussion groups for 45 years with great success for our members in the motor vehicle industry.

The Aftermarket Volume Group (AVG) provides credit and financial executives of motor vehicle suppliers who serve the traditional automotive aftermarket, mass merchandisers, and e-tailers with an opportunity to learn significant insight into their customers. Through, discussions on current and historical trade payments, issues and best practices members learn to navigate issues such as disputes, deductions, return variances and who to contact at a customer to get things resolved. This group meets six times per year in easily accessible cities and the meetings are available via conference call as well.
The ABCD Motor Credit Association (ABCD) provides the credit and financial executives of motor vehicle suppliers with insight on customers in light vehicle OE, heavy duty OE, and Off Highway segments with the tools and information required to enable better customer decisions, improvements to dispute resolution, reeducations in bed debt, and improved cash flow. This is accomplished through periodical meetings and a consistent stream of updates and insights. This group meets six times per year in easily accessible cities and the meetings are available via conference call as well. The afternoon prior to the ABCD meeting, the group holds an educational session where timely topics are discussed and/or a guest speaker presents on a subject chosen by the group.
The Credit Managers Expert Group provides credit and financial executives whose companies sell internationally with insight and knowledge of not only how specific customers operate but how it is to do business within the country in which they are selling. Each country has their own economic, social, governmental and infrastructure issues that make it challenging to do business there. Participating in the CME group provides insight and direction on not only the customers within that country but best practices and maps to navigate through the international selling process. This group meets four time per year in easily accessible cities and the meetings are available via conference call as well.
The Marine Accessory Manufacturers Credit Association provides member manufacturers who serve the marine accessory industry with insights on customer operations by providing a platform for dialogue, timely industry information, networking opportunities, plus historical, credit, operational customer information. At each meeting the group not only discusses mutual customers, but they have an educational component as well. MAMCA meets face to face three times per year and one time via conference call. Each face to face meeting is also accessible via conference call.
