Professional Development Committee
Purpose: The Skimmer Education Task Group (SETG) consists of industry members, regulatory officials and interested parties assembled to continue the work identified by the Credit Card Skimmer Task Group. Under the guidance of the Professional Development Committee (PDC), the task group will develop education and outreach strategies as well as materials to educate regulatory officials, fuel retailers, industry members and consumers on the threat payment card information theft via skimming devices and recognize skimming devices and technology. Also, the SETG will provide information and organize education sessions to share the best recommendations regarding safety procedures and technologies to better protect consumer payment information and reduce the risk of skimmer installation at fuel pumps.
Charge: The SETG will continue in force until the task group Chair and the PDC Chair agree the work has been completed. The task group may also be disbanded by vote of the NCWM Board of Directors. The task group will hold meetings via electronic media, teleconferences, face-to-face meetings or by other means available. The task group is charged with researching the continuing issue of illegal installation of credit card skimming devices in weighing or measuring devices. Members of the task group will provide outreach and education opportunities for device owners/operators, manufacturers, regulatory officials and other interested parties (including the general public), to share strategies which will help protect against the skimmer threat.
Decision Process: All appointed participants of the task group are encouraged to fully participate in the development and final vote on recommendations. If consensus cannot be reached, the vote shall be reported in a manner showing the count according to participant interest.
Reporting: This task group submits its recommendations to the Professional Development Committee for consideration by the NCWM membership.
