RULES WORK GROUPS
The NEACH professional staff serves on many national work groups and councils. NEACH members also have access to rules work groups at the national level.
As one of the four founding members of the National ACH Association, NEACH represents member interests at the national level. NEACH members have access to Requests for Comment, surveys and other information that allows you to provide us with your input prior to voting on ACH rules and other issues.
NEACH sponsors and administers the National ACH Association's professional certification program, the Accredited ACH Professional (AAP). The AAP title is an important indicator that a person has gained a high level of ACH knowledge and skill.
