Join an association whose members process 90% of all electronic payments transactions in the U.S. Every day.

1. News, Analysis and Issues Advocacy
Information is the oxygen of the electronic payments industry. EFTA brings you more of it in more formats than any other association. This includes 12 legislative and regulatory briefings each year, 4 Board of Directors meetings, an annual executive-level summit featuring timely, original programming, an annual government payments conference, 12 exclusive CEO briefings, 4 Council meetings, bi-annual CEO Reports, a new multi-media website, a research archive and direct access to EFTA’s Washington-based staff.

2. Early Warning Against Adverse Legislative and Regulatory Actions
With our experienced, respected government relations professionals exclusively focused on electronic payment issues, EFTA has been a fixture on Capitol Hill and in the Executive Agencies for more than 4 decades. EFTA often provides its members with warnings about impending law-making or regulatory activity long before you read about it in the news.

3. Opportunity for Industry Leadership and Promotion
EFTA members are leaders—in their companies, in the Association and within the financial industry. A “sustaining” membership to EFTA earns you a seat on the EFTA Board of Directors, which raises your visibility in the industry and with key decision makers.

4. Exclusive Opportunities to Shape Payments Legislation and Regulation
Because of our inter-industry make up and reputation for objectivity, Executive Agencies often seek out EFTA’s opinion on matters important to your business. Our response is to include you and your opinions in these executive-level briefings.
