It will come as no surprise to anyone that change in the payments ecosystem is accelerating, and with that growth has come increased attention from government and regulators. EPAA has been working hard to ensure that the collective voice of our members is being heard, and that the EPAA is increasingly known as an effective advocate for the payments industry to government and regulators.
