Regional Payments Associations Meet & Greet
Immediately following the First Timers’ Coffee Reception, conference attendees are invited to visit with the Regional Payments Associations and enjoy a complimentary lunch. Regional Payments Associations (RPAs) are comprised of a nationwide network of 11 Direct Member associations of NACHA with over 40 years of experience supporting the evolution of the U.S. payments system. Independently operated, they together provide personalized support for the governing rules, regulations and U.S. law related to the ACH, check, card, Image, wire, Faster Payments and Emerging Payments systems. A representative from each of the 11 RPAs will be present to welcome you and answer any questions you may have. This event is open to all PAYMENTS attendees who are interested in discovering the value RPA membership can bring to their organization.
