BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NEACH, the New England Automated Clearing House Association, today announced the agenda and speakers for the 2015 Payment Management Conference, to be held May 13th and 14th at the Framingham Sheraton Hotel & Conference Center.
This year’s conference theme, Today’s Solutions; Tomorrow’s Opportunities, will be explored in three unique and distinct learning tracks: Risk & Compliance, Opportunities, and Operations. Each track devotes six (6) concurrent sessions to drill down into important aspects of what’s taking place today, the outlook for the future, and why this is important to financial institutions and payments stakeholders.
Risk & Compliance sessions will aid attendees in helping their institution identify, manage, and mitigate the many forms of risk and threats that they face today in their quest to reach their goal of a safer tomorrow.
Opportunities sessions will offer fresh ideas being vetted in the industry on faster payments and traditional services arising from trends in retail payments, commercial payables services, and making new use of your payments data.
Operations sessions will focus on hot topics, ranging from processing and underwriting to developing issues and cross border payments. These sessions take a real world look at what’s worked, what hasn’t, what opportunities exist and what is driving changes in payments operations and efficiencies.
Other conference highpoints include general session panel discussions, a recognition breakfast for Accredited ACH Professionals (AAPs) and National Check Professionals (NCPs), and a reception with exhibitors.
