National AAP Recognition Day



On February 11, 2020, Nacha partners with the Payments Associations to honor more than 4,600 Accredited ACH Professionals as part of National AAP Recognition Day. This day highlights the importance of the AAP accreditation, as well as celebrates the achievements and contributions of AAPs nationwide. This year, Nacha, the Payments Associations, and more than 2,000 organizations will be celebrating in unique ways across the country. 

Welcome New AAPs

Nacha is pleased to welcome 292 newly-accredited AAPs. These individuals successfully passed the 2019 AAP exam and are joining the ranks of more than 4,600 AAPs nationally.

Ways to Celebrate

Nacha and the Payments Associations will commemorate National AAP Recognition Day by flying a U.S. flag over the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C. The flag will then be awarded to one lucky AAP at the annual AAP & APRP Reception at the Smarter Faster Payments 2020 conference. Join us at Payments on April 19-22 in Washington, D.C. For more information or to register, visit Payments 2020

Here are a few ideas how to celebrate
  • Take your AAPs to lunch or celebrate with an all-staff lunch.
  • Have your staff sign a “thank you” card to present to your AAPs.
  • Send a congratulatory email or letter to your AAPs and copy the staff.
  • Buy your AAPs a cake and share it with the rest of the staff.

About the AAP

AAP accreditation establishes an individual’s credibility, professional competency and expertise within the payments industry. Organizations with AAP-credentialed staff serve as industry leaders and the go-to organizations regarding changes to the Nacha Operating Rules and industry regulations. Organizations with AAP-credentialed staff also experience operational efficiencies, enhanced risk management oversight, improved regulatory compliance and increased customer service and satisfaction.
