About Us

The Card Coalition differs from other financial services associations and coalitions: Our sole focus is issues management.

Our mission is to help your company cope with 7382 state legislators, 50 Governors, 50 Attorneys General, and 50 banking commissioners.

Card Coalition membership is open to payment card issuers or networks with an interest in pursuing sound state policy and regulation that is congruent with that of the Card Coalition and approved by the Board of the Card Coalition.

We are the one united voice for the payment card industry. Interested in joining? Contact us and learn about our introductory dues offer.

What We Do

We offer a thorough and cost-effective 50-state real-time legislative and regulatory tracking on all issues related to the payment card industry. Our database is updated daily by our experienced professional staff—not only with bill activity and movement but also with member and lobbyist intelligence. Our members have full access to this database, with multiple searches and reporting strategies available.

We offer real-time intelligence on issues, and the Coalition staff is readily reachable and immediately responsive to members' inquiries and needs. We gather information daily and share it with our members. This hands-on involvement provides a distinct advantage to member companies.

We coordinate strategy development and execution and leverage the payment card perspective on a broad range of issues. We have expertise in drafting and executing 50-state advocacy strategies for model state legislation. Working together, our members successfully respond to legislative and regulatory initiatives in a very cost-effective manner.

Where necessary, we will retain lobbyists or public policy experts to represent the Coalition on issues where members do not have lobbying resources in a state or where additional lobbying coverage is crucial.

We are committed to keeping a close and keen eye on the horizon, offering insight and intelligence on what may be in store in the future for the payment card industry and consumers.
