Exciting Updates to AFIP Member Benefits
Some of you may have it sitting on your desk right now - your personalized AFIP Certified F&I Professional nameplate - showing every customer that you're a committed professional they can trust.  But for many of you, the basic wooden design simply doesn't suit your tastes or office decor, so it's been relegated to a desk drawer or home office.  By popular demand, AFIP has discontinued the old-fashioned wooden nameplate.  For courses purchased on or after January 1, 2009, AFIP will no longer ship nameplates with recognition materials, opting instead to allow certified F&I professionals to purchase the design of their choosing at the soon-to-be-launched AFIP F&I ProShop.

ALERT! Red Flag Rule Compliance Deadline Quickly Approaching
On May 1, 2009, you will be required by the FTC to be in full compliance with the Red Flag Rule.  If you don’t comply by that date, you may be subject to regulatory fines, lawsuits and negative media exposure.  If you need an inexpensive, quick and easy way to install a no- to low-disruption Red Flag Rule program, please purchase An F&I Manager’s Guide to the Red Flag Rule.
