ATMIA announces new level of membership for financial institutions
SIOUX FALLS, USA AND LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM (April 1, 2015) — The ATM Industry Association (ATMIA) announced today that it has created a new level of membership specifically for financial institutions. Although FIs have always been an important segment of the membership, this new level combines selected benefits into a package that ATMIA expects to be of particular interest to banks and credit unions of all sizes.
“ATMIA supports the professionalism of ATM deployers primarily because they take care of the customer touchpoint. The association is proud to announce a customized membership package for Financial Institutions to cater to their unique needs as ATM deployers in a demanding marketplace. Banks and credit unions are likely to find the package of benefits we’re offering both useful and educational,” says ATMIA CEO, Mike Lee.
One of the objectives of the new level is to allow for more individual members, which means that numerous FI departments can now become fully engaged in ATMIA activities and resources. Committee groups and Best Practices address ATM-related issues and processes for security, risk management, business development, and compliance, as well as operations. Financial Institution Members may also designate one representative to participate in their Regional Advisory Board.
“With a growing group of over 90 banks and other organisations amongst our existing members already qualifying for this new category, the ATMIA can rightly claim to represent the whole ATM industry, including Financial Institutions”, says Ron Delnevo, ATMIA Europe Executive Director.
Sharon Lane, Global Director, Finance and Member Services noted that “New benefits are being introduced for the Financial Institution membership level that will be attractive to banks and credit unions globally; including one free course from the ATMIA Academy certified on-line education program. ATMIA members also gain from the support and knowledge of other members through their membership.”
More information about Financial Institution Membership is available on ATMIA’s website, as well as from the Executive Director of each ATMIA Region.
