National Merchants Association’s Diane Driscoll Chosen For ETA Committee

Passionate payments professional and Partner Underwriting Manager poised to drive the industry forward


TEMECULA, Calif. Dec. 31, 2018 — Diane Driscoll, Partner Underwriting Manager, National Merchants Association (NMA), has been selected to serve on the ETA CPP Credentialing Committee.

According to ETA, “The mission of the ETA CPP Credentialing Committee is to assist ETA in serving the industry by developing a psychometrically sound, legally defensible, appropriately focused certification program for the payments industry. Committee members must hold the ETA CPP certification. The committee defines the purpose and scope of the program, develops and enforces the policies and procedures that govern the program, including setting eligibility and recertification requirements, appeals processes, ethics or code of standards, sets program strategy, establishes and monitors the financial sustainability of the program, and sets marketing goals by helping to identify target audiences, related constituencies, and different types of messaging for the different constituencies.”

Driscoll’s payments career began in 2015, when she first joined the NMA team. Shortly after, she became an active ETA member, receiving her ETA CPP certification in 2016. From there, she also joined two ETA committees, as well as the Merchant Acquirers’ Committee (MAC) and Women’s Network in Electronic Transactions (Wnet). Most recently, she was selected as a participant in the Electronic Transactions Association’s (ETA) Young Payments Professionals (YPP) Scholar Program.

“It goes without saying that Diane has an unwavering dedication to the payments industry,” says NMA CEO, Heather Altepeter. “We’re eager to see the many ways she propels the ETA CPP Credentialing Committee forward.”

Driscoll is excited about her most recent appointment and is eager to continue moving the payments industry forward.

National Merchants Association is an active member of ETA and has made significant contributions to the organization’s advocacy efforts, best practices, and more.
