Capitol Hill Fly-Ins. White House Meetings. Georgia General Assembly Briefings. These activities represent the cornerstone of building support for the ATPC, its members and the FinTech Industry in Washington, D.C. and at home in Georgia's Transaction Alley. The ATPC will host the following events throughout the remainder of 2014 and into the New Year, contact H. West Richards to learn how you can participate.
Staff and ATPC companies will meet with members of the Georgia General Assembly Democratic and Republican Caucuses throughout September and October, with a formal joint House and Senate Banking Committee presentation in January. The sessions will introduce Georgia's elected leaders to the FinTech industry, their impact on the local economy and needs for sustaining growth in the state.
The ATPC will again travel to Washington, D.C. September 29th and 30th for a robust agenda that includes the Fall Board of Directors Meeting, Capitol Hill Fly-In and a White House briefing. The board meeting will focus on federal and state legislative priorities, and programs intended to boost a FinTech talent pipeline. And board members will receive an "International Payment Rails Threat Matrix" briefing from former CIA Director and National Security Agency Director General Michael Hayden. Finally, Capitol Hill meetings will introduce the ATPC to members of Congress outside Georgia's Congressional Delegation.
On October 9th Board Chairman Tony Catalfano and other ATPC member executives will represent the organization at the prestigious Global Financial Summit (sponsored by the prestigious Financial Services Roundtable) being held at the United States Peace Institute in Washington, DC. Summit focus areas will include:
International regulation harmonization (insurance, capital standards, emerging issues)
Emerging markets (macro-financing, corporate philanthropy, financing big things)
Global Technology (Cybersecurity, emerging threats, changing/emerging technology)
The ATPC will hold an U.S. Congressional Staff FinTech Briefing in December. This is the first time a FinTech industry group has convened Congressional staff for an in-depth briefing about how the payment system works, industry needs and the national security implications associated with protecting America's "rails."
Also in December, ATPC and the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta will co-host a payments forum in Atlanta. ATPC members and affiliates will engage in an exchange of information and ideas with the Federal Reserve on the future of payments in America.
In February, ATPC and the Technology Association of Georgia will invite peer organizations from around the country to participate in the first-ever National FinTech Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.
Finally, the ATPC will partner with the Technology Association of Georgia to continue its state education efforts during FinTech Day at the Georgia General Assembly this February.
