History of the Credit Research Foundation
The Credit Research Foundation was formed on March 17, 1947 by members of the National Association of Credit
Management to specifically develop and deliver education, research and training to the business credit community. It was formally incorporated
under the laws of the State of Delaware on January 3, 1949. The first annual meeting with 115 members in attendance took place on May 16, 1949
at which time an additional 525 new members registered (See the CRF
Original Tax Exempt Certificate, the Original Articles of
Incorporation and the Minutes of the First Meeting of the
Board of Trustees of CRF).
Today, operating as an independent organization under the guidance of its own Board of Trustees, the Credit Research Foundation continues to represent
a body of knowledge with a singular focus and mission - providing education and research for today's credit, accounts receivable and customer
