2020 Virtual Regional

Thank you to all who made this such a wonderfully successful event. MAC's first Virtual Regional was a success from top to bottom. We heard from the card brands, Nacha, and the DEA. There were great panels on compliance during COVID-19 and chargebacks. And, some great sessions on AML and fraud rings. No one knows what the future will bring, but the annual MAC Regional event will return in 2021 in one form or another.
