The Electronic Funds Transfer Association Wednesday announced that San Diego has been chosen as the site of the group’s 1999 Spring member “Summit.”
The Summit, one of two semi-annual membership meetings scheduled in 1999, will be held Tuesday, March 23, at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort, with the EFTA board of directors meeting to follow the next day.
The theme of the San Diego Summit will be “Internet Strategies: A New Commerce or a New Competitor?” Scheduled sessions will include Internet-exclusive financial service providers, according to EFTA Executive Director H. Kurt Helwig.
“Being on the West Coast will allow us to take advantage of the proximity to many of the Internet-related companies located in California,” said Helwig, “as well as being responsive to the needs of our growing West Coast membership.”
The second EFTA Summit is slated for September in Washington D.C.
The complete 1999 EFTA meeting schedule follows:
— March 23-24 Semi-annual Spring Summit and Board of Directors First Quarter Meeting, San Diego
