PAYMENTS, the annual conference of NACHA – The Electronic Payments Association, is expanding this year in a new way, further cementing its place as the largest payments education conference of its type in the U.S. Payments industry leaders – including executives from Fundtech Corporation, Coca-Cola Enterprises, U.S. Central, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Capital One – will lead a special thought leadership session, called PaymentsLIVE!™, at the conference. Fundtech, the session sponsor, will facilitate a discussion around the payments landscape in 2010 and how post-crisis, payments professionals can tackle challenges and seize the opportunity for future innovation and growth. The session will feature a live webcast with audience polling, and will take place at 11:15 a.m. Pacific on Monday, April 26, 2010, at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle in front of a live audience of conference attendees.
