Over 750 people attended the NACFB’s record-breaking Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on Thursday November 28th 2019, rounding off a bumper year for the Association in both grandeur and style.

A selection of photos from the evening will be posted here shortly, or you can see a selection of photos posted socially by tracking the event hastag #NACFBGala and #NACFBAwards

The NACFB Awards Ceremony provides an annual opportunity for the Association’s brokers to recognise Patron lenders. What makes the NACFB Awards Ceremony different from others in the industry is that there is no fixed shortlist, so there can often be unexpected results from the voting.
