On Sept. 21, Nacha will partner with the Payments Associations (PA) to honor Accredited Payments Risk Professionals (APRP) as part of National APRP Recognition Day. Celebrated annually on the third Tuesday of September, National APRP Recognition Day highlights the importance of this accreditation, as well as celebrates the achievements and contributions of APRPs nationwide. This year, Nacha and the PAs will be celebrating National APRP Recognition Day in unique ways across the country.

What can you do to celebrate? Here are just a few ideas:
- If your credentialed staff is working at the office, buy them lunch.
- If your APRPs are working from home, allow them to order lunch on you.
- Celebrate the day with a team happy hour (virtual or in-person).
- Send a congratulatory email to your credentialed staff and copy the staff.
- Send your APRP flowers or other thoughtful gift.
