It's better to be a member – Join Today! 

There is strength in numbers.  ATMIA Canada is stronger with your support, and your organization gains strength from being part of ATMIA.
If you or your organization are part of the ATM industry, but not a member of ATMIA Canada, you are missing out on a wealth of great opportunities.  ATMIA members can participate in working committee groups that will help your business stay on top of security threats and the latest strategies for mitigating them.  The ATM Cyber, Software and Encryption Security Working Group and the Cassette Security Working Group are just two examples.
When the pandemic began last year, did you hesitate to continue servicing your ATM fleet because of the conflicting press reports on whether ATM technicians were considered "essential workers"?  With the help of Hill+Knowlton, ATMIA quickly informed its members that ATM personnel did indeed meet the criteria for essential workers.   And H+K also assisted us in getting a retraction from provincial leadership who misspoke on the safety of cash.
There are many other issues that our industry is dealing with, as well.  And these are matters that you will not likely hear about in the eventing news.  That's why an industry trade association is so important.
You need access to the information and resources that ATMIA has accumulated.  And ATMIA needs your support, in addition to the 65 organizations that are already make up the Canada region membership.
There has never been a better time to join ATMIA for the first time.  Or re-join if you have been a member in the past.  Give me a call today to discuss the temporary discounts available on new memberships.
By joining this month, you will also qualify for member rates for the ATMIA Canada Biennial Conference in Vancouver next April.
Stay safe and keep well in these challenging times.
