Dear ATMIA Member,
Reserve Bank Governor, Phillip Lowe in December last year emphasized the everyday use and necessity of cash. Speaking about the evolution of the payments system, Dr Lowe was clear: “I can see the end of the cheque system, but I can’t see the end of the cash system”. As we enter a new decade, we can be confident of the role cash and ATMs will play both now and into the future.
Harnessing the unique strengths and opportunities provided through ATMs will be the object of the upcoming Next Gen ATMs and Payments conference
, to be held in Sydney on 29th to 30th July 2020. Speaking slots have now opened and anyone interested in presenting is encouraged to contact Sandra Smith at Sandra.firstname.lastname@example.org
We also look forward to continuing our work in providing advocacy and leadership to the industry. Through the Strategic Direction Committe
e we will maintain our constructive relationships with organizations such as the Reserve Bank, alongside the many law enforcement authorities across our region. ATMIA will also be presenting at the Australian Banking Association's security issue working group, as well as keeping its members continually informed of relevant industry issues. We strongly recommend for our members in 2020 to join this forum and as a means to promote open dialogue across the industry.
As 2020 marks the beginning of a crucial year and decade for the industry: by working together through ATMIA we can ensure that the next 10 years are marked by technological innovation and growth, as we meet the opportunities of the future,
Wishing you all a successful 2020,
