HANOVER, Md. — The National Automotive Finance Association's 13th Annual Non-Prime Auto Financing Conference, to be held June 3–5, 2009 at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas, will feature new sessions and panels designed to fit this year's theme of "Weathering the 2009 Economy."

"No industry is suffering more right now than the auto industry," said Jack Tracey, NAF Association's executive director. "This year's conference takes action. Sessions will provide solid information and point to solutions."

Representatives of JD Power and Associates, Standard & Poor's, the National Automobile Dealers Association, Manheim and a panel of CEOs from institutions that offer non-prime financing will offer informed projections of where the nonprime auto finance industry is headed, while panel discussions focused on operations issues, stress testing and risk management will offer solutions. A panel of legal experts will discuss regulations that have an impact on auto dealers, including the FTC's Red Flags Rule and bankruptcy issues.

BenchMark Consulting International will provide a preview of the NAF Association's Annual Non-Prime Auto Financing Survey during the annual member meeting, and the conference's exhibit hall will showcase the latest products and services available to dealers and agents.
