Join Nacha and enjoy extended member benefits



Nacha offers membership opportunities through its Affiliate Program and Payments Innovation Alliance (Alliance) to every organization touching the payments ecosystem — from those new to payments looking to expand their ACH Network knowledge to seasoned authorities looking to transform the industry through innovation and dialogue to influence the future.

Affiliate Program Membership

For ACH Network stakeholders, the Affiliate Program is a cost-effective, low commitment yet information-rich way to stay informed, expand your knowledge and connect with Nacha. By joining, your organization will receive the latest information about Nacha Operating Rules proposals and changes to the ACH Network that can affect how you handle your business operations.

Payments Innovation Alliance Membership

The Payments Innovation Alliance brings together diverse, global stakeholders to support payments innovation, collaboration, and results through discussion, debate, education, networking, and special projects that support the ACH Network and the payments industry worldwide. By organizing content and focus across all payment areas, including faster payments, cybersecurity and conversational payments, the Alliance seeks to grow and advance payments and payments technology to better meet and serve the needs of the evolving industry. See us in action!

Out of the mouths of members

Affiliate Program

"We value the connections with Nacha experts that allows us to not only get answers to questions, but also offer us the opportunity to provide our input to proposed rules and the ability to participate in some rule making initiatives. In addition, the quarterly Rules update calls are a valuable source of information on potential or pending changes. “

- Rebecca Wagner, AAP, Senior Compliance Analyst, PAYCHEX

Payments Innovation Alliance

"The biggest benefit of being a Nacha Alliance member is the opportunity to interact with fellow colleagues and share ideas with a wide array of payment users and providers that differ in expertise and skill. Our ability to communicate and cooperate with such a diverse set of individuals helps give direction in terms of where we see the industry going and how to strategize to address those needs."

- David Chance, Payments Strategy & Enterprise Payments Solutions, Fiserv
