ETA Announces 2018 Committee Leadership

The Electronic Transactions Association (ETA) today announced the chairs and vice-chairs for its 2018 committees. ETA committees give members of the association — over 500 of the world’s leading payments technology companies —a chance to participate directly in high-level discussions that have major impacts on the future of the industry.

“Participation in our committees is a critical opportunity for members from across the payments ecosystem to make their voices heard, interface with one another and collectively make important decisions on the direction of the payments technology industry,” said Amy Zirkle, Vice President of Industry Affairs, ETA.

ETA members participate in a variety of industry verticals and the 2018 committees will focus on key areas of growth in the industry like mobile payments, payment facilitators and retail technology.

“The diversity of our membership is well reflected in our 2018 committee leadership,” said Zirkle. “From executives representing technology companies like Microsoft and Apple, to major processors, Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs), venture capital firms and fintechs, our committee leaders will bring a wide range of experience and perspectives to our 2018 priorities.”
