“The MAG's value is multifaceted.  One of the most significant benefits offered to my team is the value of education and awareness.  We are in an environment where emerging issues can and do have an immediate impact on merchants.  Fortunately the MAG understands our needs and is well connected to the issues.  They provide forums for education and collaboration that effectively raise the appropriate issues, allowing us the opportunity to individually assess the impacts and take appropriate action.”
