The Center for Payments™ is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of Nacha’s Smarter Faster Payments 2023 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, happening April 16 – 19.  We are particularly excited to host the Sunday evening invitation-only reception honoring Accredited ACH Professionals (AAPs) and Accredited Payments Risk Professionals (APRPs).  Professional development, exam preparation, and continuing education are central to the mission of the payments associations that collaborate as the Center for Payments.  We know how much time and effort payments professionals dedicate to obtaining and maintaining these credentials, and we are delighted to recognize and honor them!

If you are an AAP or APRP attending Payments 2023, you don’t want to miss:

Enjoying Vegas-level entertainment!

This year’s reception will keep attendees’ toes tapping and requests coming with entertaining dueling pianos! AAPs and APRPs will be able to request their favorite tunes while singing, dancing, and celebrating the night away.

Networking with your payments association!

Center for Payments, your event sponsor, is a collaboration of the 10 payments associations nationwide. Look for the table tents to identify your payments association staff and fellow members in attendance. Catch up with old colleagues and meet new friends at this interactive night of camaraderie!

Learning something new!

Whether it is a new piano riff, the latest emerging payments insight, or broadening your professional network, chances are high you will learn something new while having a blast! 

Don’t let what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas – take advantage of all the learning, networking, and resources the conference has to offer to implement back home at your institution!

We look forward to seeing our fellow AAPs and APRPs at Payments 2023!
