Why should you attend?

Recently approved amendments to the NACHA Operating Rules are expanding Same Day ACH by adding an additional window in which Same Day ACH (SDA) Entries can be transmitted, so what does this mean for the ACH network and the participants? 

Another change taking place with the new SDA Amendments to the Rules is to increase the dollar limit on a single SDA Entry from $25,000 to $100,000; This will affect the network by adding more Entries (most likely B2B payments) into the network.
