Contribute to a Community of Practice
Periodically formed Communities of Practice (COP) invite merchants and other payments stakeholders to address targeted issues and opportunities. The COPs are focused on advocating for change within the payments ecosystem and/or educating merchants on changes that may impact their organizations.
Each COP is open to All Access merchant members and other invited stakeholders (e.g. acquirers) who can assist with solving for the COPs objectives. COPs are tactical in nature and conclude when the objectives are achieved.
