*Total membership counts each NFA Member entity once. However, many NFA Members are registered in multiple categories. For example, a CPO may also be registered as a CTA and would be counted in each category. Therefore, totaling all categories will not equal the total membership count.
NFA Directories and Registries
NFA's directories and registries provide information about NFA Members and CFTC registrants, including, among other details, registration and membership status, NFA ID, and city, state, province (if applicable) and country. As a security precaution, these directories and registries are password protected.
