In the payment industry, regulatory decisions in Washington can be disruptive to our customers and the payments ecosystem as a whole. That's why Payscout proudly sponsored the ACA International Washington Insights event this week and advocated on behalf of entrepreneurs in our nation's capital.

Payscout CEO Cleveland Brown was joined by  Strategic Sales & Business Development Manager - ARM  Fran Fisher and Communications and Content Strategist George Smith in a series of meetings on Capitol Hill with legislators, regulators, and dignitaries. The team heard from numerous Senators and Congressmen from both sides of the aisle about the accounts receivable management industry, sharing bipartisan recognition of the great work being done to fuel the American economy. 

On Wednesday, the team had lunch with Former Congressman and Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. The Former Speaker provided insight on the current and future state of American politics. 

The team also held meetings with the offices of California Congressman Tony  Cárdenas,  Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris of California, Senators Johnny Isakson and David Perdue of Georgia, and Senators Cory Booker and Bob Menendez of New Jersey.

Sitting with our nation's leadership, Brown led discussions on regulation and legislation such as the Financial Choice Act and the potential impact on the accounts receivable management industry. 

Payscout's Mission is "to support the entrepreneurial dream  one transaction  at a time." Thought-leading  strategies, such as sponsoring the ACA International's Wahington Insights event and the additional Capitol Hill meetings Payscout arranged, help to fulfill that mission by creating opportunities to advocate on behalf of the entrepreneurs and consumers we  support.
