Event Details

MAC Virtual Regionals

MAC's Regional events are an annual series of three one-day seminars hosted in the West, Midwest, and East regions. Traditionally, the Regionals act as a bridge in-between annual conferences so MAC members can still connect to subject matter experts on trending topics, card brand updates, and each other. 

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, MAC is unable to host face-to-face Regionals this year. 
... But MAC can still provide the bridge.

Please join your fellow MAC members for an intimate day of sessions. With smaller 'micro' sessions centered on hot topics and larger panel discussions covering a range of sub-topics, attendees will be able to get vital information without having to wait until next year's annual conference, Level Up. 

Agenda Details: 
(subject to change)

Adding a surcharge to a card payment is a relatively recent trend with US payment solutions, and yet the majority of the products offered are knowingly non-compliant.  We will explore the various schemes, the justifications used to persuade others that they are compliant, and why the industry doesn't seem to care. Things for you to consider in supporting the variety of programs in your own shops!
