Kathleen Ferris, proud to be an AAP.
RCB Bank is proud to announce Kathleen Ferris, RCB Bank ACH Analyst, received her Accredited ACH Professional (AAP) certification and joined an elite group of highly skilled professionals across the nation that represents excellence in the electronic payments industry.
AAP certification, provided through NACHA, The Electronic Payments Association, is a highly respected honor granted only to professionals who can prove a deep understanding of the rules and products of ACH operations. Currently, there are only around 4,000 AAPs in the nation.
“I am extremely proud of Kathleen and her accomplishment of becoming a certified AAP,” said Daniel Marlin, RCB Bank VP of Operations and Ferris’ immediate supervisor. “She worked extremely hard and her efforts have helped her to be successful.”
Ferris currently monitors RCB Bank’s electronic money transfers and ACH activity (direct deposits and payments) to help protect the bank and its customers from fraudulent activity.
RCB Bank is excited to have an AAP certified professional on staff with an extensive expertise in ACH operations who can help reduce risk for the company and its customers and ensure compliance with federal regulations.
“It is a privilege to be a part of this small group of experts,” said Ferris. “I feel a great sense of responsibility. Because of the AAP, my coworkers come to me for the correct answers and I take that responsibility very seriously.”
ACH, or the Automated Clearing House Network, connects the nation’s financial institutions and processed 21 billion transactions in 2012. ACH processing drastically speeds up check processing by electronically processing checks and payments in batches instead of having to individually and physically handle each and every check or transaction. The ACH Network provides a safe, secure and reliable network for direct account-to-account consumer, business and government payments and is considered the backbone for the electronic movement of money and data.
NACHA, the Electronic Payments Association, manages the development, administration and governance of the ACH Network. NACHA represents more than 10,000 financial institutions.
RCB Bank is a community bank with 33 locations across Oklahoma and Kansas. Founded in 1936, RCB Bank is committed to serving its communities with conservative banking practices and progressive banking. Like us on Facebook to stay up-to-date on our latest news, products and services.
