Thank You MAG Members!

The Merchant Advisory Group (MAG) was founded in 2008 by a small visionary group of merchants in the payments field dedicated to driving positive change in payments through multi-stakeholder collaboration. The MAG addresses a broad range of payments issues with no limitations in scope.

Thank you for joining the MAG, a leading organization shaping the future of payments acceptance.

 

    Partnership

    Membership Verticals 2019

    Member Engagement Opportunities

          The MAG has many opportunities for members to get involved by joining a committee. Committees typically meet once a month or more often as needed. Committee is represented by committee member subject matter experts with objectives to identify, prioritize, and execute strategies to improve payments operational challenges most relevant to MAG merchant members.

          Opportunities for merchants within the same vertical to discuss and share industry-specific challenges. Merchant companies have the ability to send representatives to any variety of the merchant SIGs. The SIG breakout sessions are MERCHANT ONLY. These groups identify critical and emerging industry issues for the MAG.

          The MAG periodically forms Communities of Practice with merchants and other payments stakeholders to address targeted issues/opportunities. COP objectives focus on advocating for change within the payments ecosystem and/or educating merchants on changes that may impact their organizations.

          Want to start a new Community of Practice (COP)?

          The following are required to form a new COP:

          • The issue has defined objective(s) that when achieved will signify the end of the COP.
          • Issue/opportunity impacts several merchants or is a relatively common problem shared by others.  
          • You are a merchant who is willing to help lead the effort and get others engaged.
          • Exclusive access to the MAG Learning Center (MLC), your go-to location for past webinar recordings, conference session presentations, polling, educational session recordings, industry publications, member surveys, best practices, and additional tools to help you educate new employees and manage your department.
          • The MAG provides 101 and 201 educational sessions at our Annual and Mid-Year Conferences.  We are capturing these sessions for the benefit of our merchant members who were unable to attend live or want to refer to these sessions post-conference.
          • Member-Only Educational Resources, developed by the MAG and industry experts, are available for our merchant members, including Merchant Readiness Guides, Best Practices, and Quick Reference Guides.
