The SAFCA Board

SAFCA is led by a Board that meets regularly to manage professional accreditation and membership issues, as well as monitor and communicate on developments within the sector.

We advocate to government and business to ensure that financial counsellors are supported in the work they do.

We also advocate on behalf of the clients of financial counsellors for a fairer marketplace that will prevent financial problems in the first place.
