ATMIA members are encouraged to serve on committees to better our industry. Committees typically convene quarterly via conference calls, which may be scheduled on a more frequent basis if deemed necessary. Members may serve on one or more of the following committees available to membership level status:
Advocacy Council (Global)
The Advocacy Council is an opportunity for Members to come together, to discuss key issues and concerns facing the cash industry in Europe and beyond and to better understand what would be most beneficial to all of you as we look to expand our advocacy efforts across our regions.
If the purpose of the Advocacy Council is to promote access to cash, then its primary objective would be to increase awareness about the importance of cash as a payment option and to advocate for policies that support and maintain the availability of cash.
