Payment Systems Task Force

Connect with retail payment leaders

This task force discusses matters related to card acceptance and other issues retailers face with credit and debit card associations and card acceptance networks. This task force discusses the latest payments trends and payments from the retailers' perspective.

Task force members receive exclusive memos about upcoming legislation that could affect retail businesses and invitations to webinars and special programs hosted by NRF.



The task force convenes virtually the fourth Thursday of every month and includes calls with our consultants from CMSPI.


The NRF Payments System Task Force is open to senior directors in payments, legal, operations and technology roles within NRF retail member companies, such as senior director, director of payments and treasurer, or at NRF’s discretion.
