Secure Cash & Transport Association Selects John Nance to Deliver Keynote Address at 2017 Conference

PURCELLVILLE, VA (MAY 11, 2017) - The Secure Cash & Transport Association (SCTA) announces the selection of ABC News Aviation Analyst, Patient Safety Advocate, and Licensed Attorney, John Nance, as the keynote speaker for its 2017 conference. A pioneer and well-known advocate of using the lessons from the recent revolution in aviation safety to equally revolutionize the patient safety performance of hospitals and all of healthcare, John Nance will deliver lessons to the cash industry on becoming a high reliability industry.

The SCTA is a nonprofit group representing professionals in ATM servicing, cash handling and processing, transportation, and safekeeping of cash and coin throughout North America. The SCTA Conference takes place September 27-29, 2017 at the Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile.

“Society and the economy depend on the entire cash lifecycle and its constituents to remain highly reliable,” explains SCTA President, Mark Lowers. “The gravity of failure is simply too great. We sought a speaker for this year’s conference that would help our attendees, each of whom plays a vital role in the transport, servicing, and management of cash here in the United States, improve the reliability of their operations and the industry as a whole.

Nance will bring his understanding of the characteristics and habits of high reliability organizations (HROs), through his experience in aviation and healthcare, to explain how HRO principles can apply to the cash industry. He will describe the shared characteristics and practices of HROs and provide clear insight attendees can bring back to their organizations to keep them working well when faced with high risks and unexpected situations.

The SCTA’s 2017 conference will feature informative sessions, networking opportunities, and exhibits. A preliminary agenda includes sessions on AML program management, FinCEN enforcement, truck driver shortages, law enforcement cooperation, emergency scenario planning, and other important topics.

The conference is designed to support the Secure Cash & Transport Association’s mission to protect, strengthen, and unite the cash-in-transit and cash servicing industries. Details about the event, registration information, and association membership details can be found at the event website at
