A lot is happening within the ACH network these days.  As volumes and ways to utilize payments expand, so do the potential opportunities and risks.  During this session, we will discuss the latest events in ACH and how the new rules will impact both financial institutions and their business clients, focusing on NACHA’s Same Day ACH proposal, peer-to-peer payments, and various network quality initiatives.
