APCA participates and sponsors a number of forums. These forums are designed to foster discussions, debate and understanding between and within APCA's wider community of stakeholders. These efforts improve the Australian payments system through informing APCA decision-making and industry policy.
The APCA Stakeholder Forum is independently chaired and commenced operation in 2011. It meets at least annually and provides a venue for non-members stakeholders, particularly those with an interest in the direct entry and cheques systems. These stakeholders are able to express their views on topical issues with both APCA and other stakeholders and can better understand APCA's own activities and strategic priorities. Read More
