NACHA celebrating 30th annual TPI

NACHA—The Electronic Payments Association stated it is celebrating the 30th year of The Payments Institute, "a university-style program focused on continuing payments education for industry professionals.

"Just as the payments industry and ecosystem have evolved over the last 30 years, so has The Payments Institute," said Scott M. Lang, AAP, Senior Vice President, Association Services at NACHA, which has served as trustee of the automated clearing house network since 1974. "With its incomparable, in-depth and comprehensive curriculum and respected faculty, TPI remains the smart educational investment for employers, as well as payments practitioners who want to better contribute to their organizations and grow their careers."

This year, the TPI will be held July 16 to 19 at the Emory Conference Center Hotel in Atlanta. It offers "targeted areas of concentration that examine Same Day ACH, real-time payments, disruptive technologies and business models, and emerging topics in payments risk and security."

The curriculum is geared toward the needs and practices of payment professionals whether they are an experienced Accredited ACH Professional (AAP), working on getting credentialed, or are new to the industry. Attendees can earn up to 20 AAP continuing education credits for the year, and up to 25.8 CTP/CCM recertification credits, NACHA said.

NACHA manages the development, administration and rules for the ACH payment network, which connects all 11,000 financial institutions in the United States by moving money and information directly from one bank account to another. NACHA's data indicates that in 2016, 25 billion ACH payments moved $43 trillion. The ACH Network is now "one of the largest, safest, and most reliable systems in the world, creating value and enabling innovation for all participants," according to NACHA.
