Initial feedback from members of Congress and their staff during founding ATPC conversations was that few FinTech companies visited them to share information about the industry. And as a result, there was limited Capitol Hill knowledge about how the payments system functions and how various pieces of pending legislation impacted companies in the FinTech space. That’s why the ATPC partnered with Congressman Lynn Westmoreland (RGA), senior U.S. House Financial Services Committee Member, to hold a “Payments 101” briefing for Congressional staff in Washington on January 28, 2015. West Richards, Steve Karp from Worldpay, Greg Boardman from Ingenico North America, and Amit Kholsa from FIS presented to the group of more than 40 attendees representing 36 Congressional offices at the Cannon House Office Building on Capitol Hill.
