2019 OSC eCommerce Announcement

conference welcome

I am pleased to announce that on April 17, 2019, the Office of the State Controller will hold its 2019 eCommerce Conference at the NCSU McKimmon Center (located at 1101 Gorman Street in Raleigh). Presentations will include emerging trends in the eCommerce payment industry, ways to better secure card transactions, and real-world case studies of cybersecurity as well as many other relevant topics. Additional information can be found in the conference agenda.

Many of the state’s eCommerce vendors have been invited to attend the conference and will be available so you may learn more about the services offered. Staff from several of the card brands will be in attendance as well as staff from First Data, Bank of America, and Coalfire. They will be available to talk with you and answer any questions you may have. In addition, representatives from Department of Administration and Secretary of State will be available to answer questions about the eProcurement and eNotary Programs respectively.

The conference registration fee is $65 per attendee and includes breakfast, morning and afternoon breaks, and a buffet lunch. The doors to McKimmon Center will open at 7:00 a.m., and participant check-in/breakfast will begin at 7:30 a.m. The conference will begin promptly at 8:15 a.m. Conference participants will be eligible to receive up to seven (7) Continuing Professional Education credit hours.
