“There are a lot of considerations that independent ATM owners, banks, credit unions, and merchant deployers need to be aware of as they migrate to chip technology, and many have questions about how to become chip-compliant,” said Randy Vanderhoof, director of the U.S. Payments Forum. “This workshop will cover important planning information and implementation best practices to help ATM stakeholders effectively and efficiently implement chip technology.”

“NAC appreciates this opportunity to partner with the U.S. Payments Forum in sponsoring a top quality, live EMV Workshop event for the benefit of America’s ATM industry”, said Bruce Renard, executive director of NAC. “Bringing together some of the industry’s top EMV experts from a number of different segments of the U.S. ATM industry offers a unique opportunity to improve our collective store of knowledge and facilitate a smoother EMV transition for the nation’s extensive and varied ATM base.”

Through this workshop, attendees will:

  • Better understand upcoming liability shifts and the chargeback process – and what they mean to ATM owners and operators
  • Learn about important chip concepts and basic chip requirements for ATMs
  • Get suggested best practices and special considerations for migration planning and chip implementation – including ongoing maintenance and update information
  • Enjoy coverage of lessons learned and “landmines” to avoid during and after EMV migration
  • Have available Q&A opportunities with the nation’s top EMV experts
  • Hear updates on the current status of the U.S. ATM chip migration

This workshop is based on the recent U.S. Payments Forum white paper, “Implementing EMV at the ATM: Requirements and Recommendations for the U.S. ATM Community,” created by the Forum’s ATM Working Committee. This workshop is part of the U.S. Payments Forum’s ongoing efforts to provide the education necessary for the U.S. to successfully move to chip cards.

For Chicago-area banks, credit unions, independent ATM providers, and merchant deployers, the Smart Card Alliance will also host an EMV workshop on September 19 from 1-3pm CT at the Rosemont Hilton, Chicago O’Hare.
