Dear Amber,
The Industry has seen the introduction of the Black economy taskforce’s suggested $10,000.00 ban on cash. It is important to stress that research undertaken by the association indicates that the impact of the ban on our industry will be minimal, due to existing restrictions on withdrawal amount being lower than the cash limit. Nonetheless, ATMIA will maintain close attention on the impact of the Cash ban, prepared to act and advocate fiercely if needed.
As part of our broader advocacy work, it gives me great pleasure to announce that Mr. Gavin Napier returns as the Chair of the Strategic Direction Committee in 2020. Gavin brings with him a wealth of knowledge which we look forward to harnessing. The 1st Strategic Direction Committee is scheduled for 8th April, the agenda and dialup details have been forward to AP members, please contact me if you would like me to resend this information.
One event not to be missed in 2020 is the Next-Gen ATMs and Payments conference. This two-day event will be held in Sydney from 29th to 30th July and will address the challenges and opportunities of our rapidly changing industry. The exhibition area will showcase the best in the industry and delegates will have time to network and discuss key issues and solutions.  To view the program, please click here.  For all questions related to sponsorship or exhibiting, please contact,
Finally, we encourage members to view ATMIAs Global Statement on - "Separating Facts from Fiction on Coronavirus (COVID-19)"  click here and Cash is strong in a crisis- the Role of ATMs in the Coronavirus Pandemic click here.

New Coronavirus Health Crisis - Seperating Fact From Fiction

A Statement by the ATM Industry Association for Immediate Global Release

Panic reactions are happening across the world as the new corona virus, for which there isn’t yet human immunity, spreads. We are seeing emptier supermarket shelves, an extremely volatile stock market, cancelled events and flights and many other signs of fear spreading even faster than the virus itself.

The medical consensus is that this virus is transmitted through respiratory droplets, primarily when infected persons sneeze, or cough, and the viral droplets then hook onto mucous or saliva of another person to gain a foothold in their cells so the virus can reproduce in that new host body.

The best advice is to regularly sanitise hands and disinfect surfaces, which may have been contaminated by viral droplets, while avoiding, as far as possible, touching one’s nose, eyes or mouth. We know that in close contact with an infected person, such as when shaking hands, or when we touch a doorknob, tabletop or surface previously touched by an infected person, we run a risk of catching the virus.

Since people don’t usually sneeze or cough into their banknotes, and since we all touch dozens of surfaces every day, it is disingenuous to single out cash as a medium of transmission of the virus. Handling cards, mobile devices and touching keypads in public places, not to mention countless other surfaces, can carry an equal risk. What is important is frequent hand sanitising to kill off any viral droplets given that the virus has a fragile envelope surrounding it which can be readily destroyed through disinfectants
