A Kick-Off Message from the NAC Board Chair

Jacksonville, FL, 2/1/2017

Dear NAC Members, Partners and Friends:

This is traditionally a time to reflect on the past year as we start tackling the New Year ahead. For the Independent ATM Industry, however, 2017 will continue to be anything but traditional. Business as usual is simply not in the cards. With the major challenges of EMV implementation, changes in Washington, and the impacts of new technology upon our businesses, this is a time for America's ATM owners, operators and suppliers to step up, get together like never before, and become fully engaged in the political process.

george-sarantopoulos-nac-board-chairThere are both threats and opportunities out there this year that can make or break our industry and I want you to know that NAC's leadership will be doing all in our power to continue fighting the good fight for you as we continue delivering wins on these critical issues. The past five years have proven that if any trade association can help the U.S. independent ATM industry in a real and meaningful way - it's clearly NAC.

NAC will be focused this year on restoring access to bank accounts for our ATM businesses, addressing the ongoing challenges with EMV implementation, and working to vigorously follow thru with NAC's antitrust litigation against VISA and MasterCard. NAC will also continue our initiatives to address the latest fraud & crime threats against ATMs and we will keep weighing in on state/local laws and regulations impacting out businesses.

In sum, you have my and NAC leadership's commitment to continue working tirelessly for you - our fellow U.S. ATM owners, operators and suppliers - to make 2017 a year of strength and continued growth for our industry. Your involvement and support in our community is critical to our mutual success. Please become involved in the work of NAC today as we help protect and promote America's entrepreneurial ATM industry for tomorrow!

Are you with me?

Sincerely,

george-signature
