Important Update: Membership Enhancements & Dues Adjustment for the Upcoming Fiscal Year

We hope this message finds you well. At the Association of Payment Professionals, we are deeply committed to providing exceptional value and service to our community of payment professionals. We understand the unique budget constraints within risk and compliance departments and have always strived to keep our membership fees as low as possible.

To ensure we can continue delivering top-notch resources and support, we’re making slight adjustments to our membership dues effective June 10th of the upcoming fiscal year. Rest assured, this decision was made with careful consideration and as a last resort.

Despite this adjustment, we’re proud to maintain our position as one of the most affordable options in our industry, with our dues ranking in the bottom 10% compared to other trade associations. Plus, the increase will be $200 or less, reaffirming our commitment to affordability.

Here are the adjusted dues for the upcoming fiscal year:

  •  Payment Members: $745
  •  Payment Members (1-2 members only): $475
  •  Solution Providers: $995

Over the past year, we've been hard at work enhancing our offerings to provide even more value to your membership. Here are some of the highlights:

  • "7 Things to Know About..." White Paper Series: Starting with key insights on "Surcharging" and "Money Mules".
  •  Strategic Interest Group (SIG) for Fraud Trends: A forum for sharing and addressing emerging threats.
  •  Enhancements to the APP Alert System: Improving your capabilities to detect and prevent fraud.
  •  Launch of M@Cademy: A new platform offering specialized educational courses.
  •  New DEI Subcommittee: Committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion within our industry.

These enhancements significantly enrich the resources available to our members, empowering you to stay ahead in this fast-paced, dynamic field.

We truly appreciate your understanding and ongoing support as we implement these necessary adjustments. Our team is here to answer any questions you may have about these changes or the additional benefits we have introduced.

Thank you for being a valued part of our community!

Warm regards,
Board of Directors Association of Payment Professionals
