​Session Description:

The Center for Payments™, a joint program sponsored by ten payments associations across the country representing 8,000 banks and credit unions, recently released findings from its third, national industry survey – Payments Priorities in 2021 and Beyond. The survey focused on critical payments issues financial institutions will be addressing in 2022. Based on feedback from hundreds of U.S. financial institutions, the results paint an interesting picture of the very near future of payments.
