Early Bird Registration Deadline Nears for Payments 2020

We don’t have Ryan Seacrest in Times Square, nor is there a ball drop. But trust us: The clock is ticking toward the deadline for a sweet deal to attend Smarter Faster Payments 2020—and to help a worthy cause.

This Friday, Feb. 21, is the last day to snag savings of up to $400 on early registration for Payments. It’s also the final day to be part of Nacha’s Payments Pays it Forward effort. Nacha would love to donate $10,000 to one of four charities that encourages donations via ACH. But you have to register by Feb. 21 to help us reach our registration goal. 

There are so many great reasons to come to Payments 2020. Whether you’re a payments industry veteran, a newbie, or somewhere in between, there’s truly something for everyone.

As always there’s a wealth of education, including seven session tracks this year covering myriad topics from ACH and Innovations in Information, to Cybersecurity & Risk and Disruptive Ideas & Technologies. 

Need your continuing education credits? Earn them at Payments. AAPs, APRPs, Certified Treasury Professionals (FP&A and CTP/CCM) can all earn credits. And starting this year, Payments also offers Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits, making attendance an open and shut case for attorneys. 

We also have some inspiring keynote speakers, including Carla Harris of Morgan Stanley, futurist Scott Klososky, and innovative composer Kai Kight. And you’ll want to start mapping your strategy for this year’s exhibit hall.

But it’s not all work and no play. First, there’s location. This year’s Payments is at beautiful National Harbor in Washington, D.C., where there’s so much to do. And that’s on top of all the networking events, which are prime time for making new contacts and catching up with old friends. 

But the time is now to both save with early bird registration and to help a worthy cause through Payments Pays it Forward. Visit our registration page no later than Feb. 21.
