Who Should Attend:

  • Senior Financial Institution Staff  - You need to know about the industry changes and trends that impact your financial institution and your customers. 
  • Treasury Managers, Sales and Service - Learn about the hot topics in treasury and cash management and the trends that impact your organization. 
  • Corporate Payments Professionals - Learn about the latest payment solutions and applications. Network with your peers to find out what’s working for them. You might save yourself (and your company) some time and trouble! 

Continuing Education Credits:

The Concepts agenda is created with continuing education credits in mind and designed to qualify for up to 10 renewal credits for Accredited ACH Professionals (AAP) and Certified Treasury Professionals (CTP). Although they will not be pre-approved by either association, most (if not all) sessions are expected to meet the criteria of NACHA and the Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) for continuing education. Credits may be available for other designations as well (i.e. NCP). Attendees are responsible for tracking the criteria for their designation and for reporting continuing education to the appropriate authority. Additional credits are available for those who also attend a pre-conference AAP or NCP Alliance Meeting (AAPs and NCPs only, must register in advance) and for NCPs who volunteer for the pre-conference ECCHO session.
