About Crowdfunding Professional Association
The CfPA Mission
Our mission is to create a strong and viable trade association for this new and emerging industry that supports the development of its members and encourages participation and awareness in crowdfund investing across the globe. The CfPA will help members get connected and stay networked in the Crowdfunding industry through CfPA communications, events and growing benefits. CfPA promotes industry best practices through educational events for all constituents in the crowdfunding ecosystem.
In pursuit of our mission, we will adhere to some key principles:
- Identify opportunities where the application of ideas, people and capital formation will benefit the organization and society in significant and measurable ways
- Develop innovative programs leading to practical, sustainable solutions that are widely accepted and implemented globally
- Partner with others to leverage our resources and capabilities while avoiding the creation of dependency
About The CfPA
The Crowdfunding Professional Association (CfPA) is a 501 (c)(6) nonprofit trade group that was established shortly after the signing of the Jumpstart Our Business Startup Act (“JOBS Act”) on April 5, 2012. The CfPA is dedicated to equitably representing the Crowdfunding industry and supporting the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) during the rulemaking period while providing the industry with education, professional networking opportunities and the tools necessary to cultivate a balanced and healthy ecosystem that will accelerate capital formation and ensure investor protection.
CfPA committees are pillars of the organization. Each year our committees plan and sponsor educational and social events, produce newsletters, and attract new members to the organization. Committee participation is available only to CfPA members, and is seen as the clear path to leadership roles, including election to the board of directors and executive committee; committees typically meet twice monthly.
Get involved and develop your skills and network by volunteering for CfPA committees. The following committees are looking for your commitment and engagement: Education & Training; Conferences & Outreach; Member Engagement. After registering as a Member of the CfPA, email [email protected] and let us know which committee you are interested in joining, and we’ll be in touch.
