ATM Industry Association (ATMIA)

The ATM Industry Association, founded in 1997, is a global non-profit trade association with over 1,300 members in 50 countries. The membership base covers the full range of this worldwide industry comprising 1,753,377 installed ATMs.

ATMIA has chapters around the world in Europe, United States, Asia-Pacific, Asia, Africa, Canada, Middle East and Latin America.

ATMIA's Mission Statement

As an independent, non-profit trade association, our mission is:

  • to promote ATM convenience, growth and usage worldwide
  • to protect the ATM industry's assets, interests, good name and public trust
  • to provide education, best practices, political voice and networking opportunities for member organizations

In June 2003, ATMIA established the Global ATM Security Alliance (GASA) with the mission to employ global security resources in a united alliance in order to protect the ATM industry from criminal activity. Its main projects have included: the creation of an online global ATM crime database management system and fraud alert system called Cognito, best practice manuals for the whole ATM security lifecycle, and a communications program.

100handThe global ATM pictogram, developed and tested by ATMIA, and registered by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), is the world's only official public sign for the ATM. It is registered in ISO 7001 as PI CF 005, with PI standing for Public Information and CF standing for Commercial Facilities.

ATMIA's CEO, Michael Lee shares his thoughts ~ "In any member organization, it is important that the perceived value of membership should exceed the perception of its cost. ATMIA continues to add value to our membership packages while keeping its prices as moderate as possible, since we take our status as a non-profit member association serving the industry to promote and protect it as best we can. We welcome any suggestions for improvement and value member feedback greatly."
