About UMACHA

What We Do

Financial institutions and corporate members across the Midwest choose UMACHA as a key resource to enhance their understanding of electronic payments. We're known for our extensive knowledge base as well as our national representation in the payments industry.

Our Mission

To support our members and other stakeholders in payment system participation through education and training, marketing and operational support, information dissemination and consulting, with a particular emphasis on the ACH network.

High Standards of Education and Knowledge-Based Training

UMACHA publishes and distributes handbooks and training aids for its members. Many of these set the standard and are used by other ACH associations across the country. UMACHA supports the national Accredited ACH Professional (AAP) program and supports a number of test sites for its members. Working closely with the ACH Operators, especially the Ninth Federal Reserve Bank, local and national government agencies, Social Security and Financial Management Services, UMACHA helps ensure quality within our district and high customer service levels.

National Presence

UMACHA is a key national force. As a member of NACHA, the Electronic Payments Association, we represent our members on standing national committees and in working groups dealing with key ACH issues.

UMACHA also has representation on specific products or process-related industry groups through NACHA Councils. We have direct involvement with the Council for Electronic Billing and Payment, Internet Council, Electronic Check Council and the Corporate Payments Council.
