NCP Check Accreditation – A Real Life Story

At a recent NCP Alliance meeting, Cathy Kelemen from County National Bank shared how becoming an NCP was personally and professionally beneficial. Armed with a thorough understand of check processing rules, she was able to recover $37,000 for her Financial Institution. Cathy said, “Becoming an NCP made all the difference.” The National Check Professional (NCP) Program is designed to recognize and build check expertise among payments professionals. Having an NCP on staff promotes the credibility of your organization by enhancing knowledge of check operations, regulations, products, and trends. Do you have an NCP on staff? Are you up for the challenge?
