NACM Southwest is excited to partner with the Texas Food and Fuel Association (TFFA) to provide an new, exclusive NACM group for TFFA supplier members.

It just seems right to us, somehow, that your customers pay you for the goods and/or services you delivered when they agreed to pay. Seems simple enough, but we all know it doesn't always work like that!  Organized specifically for the purpose of preventing fraud and business trade theft and working diligently since 1906 to make sure suppliers have the information they need to get paid for their sales, NACM Southwest is proud to present TFFA supplier members with a group to:

  • A business credit report data bank on medium and small businesses;
  • Member-to-member alerts on significant events in your customer's business life;
  • Accredited educational sessions meetings that are tailored to our needs & business;
  • Access to best-in-class practices in the B2B arena;
  • Updates on law and regulation that affect payment transactions with your customers;

It’s true what they say about the company you keep. If you keep the company of credit professionals in your industry you will:

  • Have an edge by getting information on prospects and customers, first
  • Save thousands of dollars every month by knowing which customers have NOT paid your competitors according to terms
  • Avoid opening accounts for customers who have ‘stiffed’ your competitors
  • Get the truth from a network of trusted peers in a safe, monitored environment
  • Save even more money with special products and discounts for your industry and your profession
  • ‘Break bread’ and ‘rub shoulders’ with the best and the brightest in credit management today
  • Receive industry credit group early warning system alerts about customers, prospects, or orders that send up red flags
  • No information on a prospective customer? Use the “Poll My Group” privilege to get access to a safe way to build an official credit report immediately
  • Ask that ‘dumb’ question in a safe and supportive environment

A Group Designed for You!                      

The business credit professional’s secret weapon is an industry credit group.  In this industry specific forum, credit managers in the same business field safely and legally engage in a roundtable discussion of the current debt payment practices of common customers. As the host of the TFFA Group, NACM Southwest ensures compliance with anti-trust laws to keep you and your company safe.  As your business credit trade association, NACM Southwest is dedicated to improving the performance of today’s business credit professional.
