Blue skies, green payments

NACHA - The Electronic Payments Association will host its annual conference, Payments 2009, from April 5 to 8, at the Orlando World Center Marriot in Orlando, Fla. In addition to discussing automated clearing house (ACH) solutions, the event will explore a variety of topics pertaining to payments industry innovations and challenges.

"If you look at the program structure, we have different tracks covering topics from all sides of financial services," said Scott M. Lang, Senior Vice President, Association Services for NACHA. "The conference seeks to serve up a full, rich range of services for the attendees, giving them insights on best practices, card solutions, check electronification and corporate payment solutions, as well as our core ACH component."

Keynote speaker Heidi Miller's speech, "Finding opportunities in the midst of tremendous challenges," will address how technological and process improvements can keep the payments industry strong during uncertain economic times.

"Heidi is a very dynamic and provocative industry thought leader, and we thought in the current climate it was very topical," Lang said. "We felt we needed somebody who understands change, represents solid management through change with innovations and new ideas, and who can show us how to steer a good solid course through changes in our business."

NACHA also noted that April was designated PayItGreen month by the PayItGreen Alliance. Launched in 2007 and led by NACHA, the alliance is a coalition of financial services companies devoted to educating businesses and consumers about the beneficial environmental impact of forgoing paper and choosing electronic payments, bills and statements instead.

"There was such intense interest in the industry for the PayItGreen movement that we've been working to make new opportunities available for organizations and help move the dial to increase adoption of electronic bills and statements," Lang said. For more information about PayItGreen, visit
