Hats in the ring for ETA awards

The Electronic Transactions Association, an international trade association representing companies that offer electronic processing products and services, is hosting its annual awards ceremony this spring. Award recipients will be announced at the President's Dinner during ETA's Annual Meeting & Expo April 15, 2008, held at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

The Expo is a place to network with partners, clients and colleagues, as well as take in many exhibitors and gain information about new products and services. New this year, attendees must register for the conference to make reservations at the Mandalay Bay Resort. Once registration is completed, recipients will receive a reference number that must be given to the hotel reservations desk to reserve a room.

Industry leaders are nominated for awards by their colleagues and honored by the ETA for a job well done. Names of candidates must be received by Feb. 4, 2008, to be considered. Nominations can be completed online at:

The six awards under consideration for 2008 are Business Partner of the Year, Committee of the Year, Committee Volunteer, Distinguished Payments Professional, Member of the Year and Technology Innovation. Guidelines for selecting nominees are as follows:

The Business Partner award is specifically designed for a company that is currently an ETA member and has shown extreme levels of support in an effort to further the association's success. To receive the Committee of the Year award, nominees must be ETA members that have had a large impact on the association. This is evidenced by their effort, spirit and accomplishments, which have added to ETA's value.

Appropriate candidates for the Committee Volunteer award are those who have dedicated time and effort to their committee of choice this year, reaching above and beyond the norms. The Distinguished Payments Professional award is presented to an individual who has influenced and implemented industry trends. This individual must be a leader who is respected by associates and regularly contributes to the success of the payments industry.

The Member of the Year award's recipient is based on an individual's leadership skills. This candidate will be a volunteer from an ETA member company who has strongly supported the association's advancement. A member company whose use of technology has increased profitability and made great advances within the industry is eligible to be considered for the Technology Innovation award.

Winners' names will be kept confidential until the night of the ceremony.
