CFO Network Committee
CFO Network Committee members are senior finance executives involved not only in day-to-day operations, but who also play a strategic role in their organization’s overall operations. Each quarter, the committee meets to receive a comprehensive public affairs report on key issues impacting the retail industry, including developing issues related to privacy, competition, PCI, recycling, chip cards, organized crime, etc. Participants also receive an in-depth briefing on RCC’s Retail Conditions report, allowing for discussion with peers on trends.

The Payments Committee works on government policy, regulatory and administrative issues as well as the business issues that relate to payments (credit/debit card transactions and associated costs). The committee identifies the government actions that affect retailers and their transactions with customers; analyses the implications of these actions, guides and participates with RCC staff to develop, present and advance retailer views on these matters to the appropriate bodies; identifies the business issues that arise in the area of payments (especially with respect to relationships with financial institutions, credit card companies and processors); and, represents the interests of the trade to financial institutions, bodies that represent and/or oversee financial institutions, other payments organizations, governments and other interested parties.
