Alabama Pawnbrokers Association

About the APA


The Alabama Pawnbrokers Association provides guidance to pawnbrokers on how to be involved on a local, statewide and national level. In addition the APA offers members training related to local, state and federal laws that apply to the industry.


The Alabama Pawnbrokers Association is comprised of pawnbrokers throughout the state of Alabama who wish to promote and further the image of the pawn industry. Our goal is to elevate the pawn industry through education, mentoring, and legislation.


Many of our members are also members of the National Pawnbrokers Association.


The APA hosts an annual state educational meeting in early October.  We also help organize the regional Dixie Pawnbroker Educational Conference and Trade Show in the Spring.


The APA is very active in legislative affairs that affect the pawn industry at local, statem and federal levels.
