NEACH and Massachusetts Bankers Association (MBA) to collaborate on new Payments School

Burlington, Mass., February 22, 2021 — The New England Automated Clearing House (NEACH) today announced its collaboration with the Massachusetts Bankers Association (MBA) to launch Payments School, a virtual offering taking place on March 24-25, 2021. The goal of Payments School is to help professionals in the payments industry navigate opportunities and challenges in a rapidly evolving world.


The Payments School will consist of two day-long online seminars comprised of key topics around different payments channels and the rules that govern them, as well as addressing advanced topics in payments strategy, risk management, and new technologies.


“There is a lot that goes into developing a payments strategy and everything that supports it,” said Sean Carter, NEACH President and CEO. “That’s why we’re excited about joining with the MBA to develop our first-ever Payments School to cover the important issues in detail. During the first day of Payments School, attendees will learn about payments risk and the many payments networks for financial institutions to use. The second day focuses on developing a strategy that aligns with your own organization’s goals.”


Ben R. Craigie, Director of Compliance and Training at MBA added, “Payments are an essential service for banks, particularly with so many transactions taking place online or through mobile channels.  Payments School is an ideal forum for bankers in areas such as compliance, retail, operations, risk management, and more—to expand their knowledge and learn the latest about this important aspect of our industry.”


Payments School will be held entirely online, using Zoom Webinar for the virtual learning environment. Registration is available both for NEACH and MBA members as well as non-members. To learn more and sign up, please visit
