The ATPC is rooted in Georgia’s Transaction Alley where electronic payments and the fintech industry began. Yet, our members enable payments in states across the nation and in every corner of the globe. The ATPC has a rich history of economic development, thought leadership, and engagement on legislative and regulatory topics like cybersecurity, privacy, financial inclusion, fraud, as well as emerging themes like open banking, AI, and stable coins.
At its core, the ATPC is an advocacy organization focused on furthering the interests of the payments processing industry throughout federal and state government ecosystems.
The ATPC leverages a “hub-and-spoke” model at the federal level, matching ATPC member companies and employee bases across the country with congressional districts and relevant constituencies. The ATPC also sets agendas at the state legislative level, conducting in person fly-ins and hosting “Payments 101” sessions to educate key committees with industry oversight on how the payments ecosystem operates.
“The board representation is at a high level. We’re competitors, but when we get into our board meetings, we’re not competitors. We’re talking about the industry. It’s getting to that level of knowledge that makes ATPC different.”
“The ATPC brings together a very diverse group of folks involved in the payments industry. Having that one voice is much more powerful, much more effective, both in the states and in Congress. Most people don’t really think about payment processing in their daily lives. So, the opportunity for ATPC to come in and explain how the system works is really important.”
“I think it’s really important to think of the state legislative arena as critical, if not more critical, than we do the federal arena and ATPC addresses this in an impactful way.”
