New ATM Group Welcomes CUs
A new association of smaller, independent ATM deployers may provide credit unions with an additional ally on certain ATM regulatory fights, according to an executive with the new trade group.
The National ATM Council is a cooperative effort of the National Association of ATM ISOs and the Alliance of Specialized Communications Providers. Its members hope organizations which members hope to use it to highlight issues that they felt have not gotten sufficient attention, according to the group's new Executive Director Bruce Renard.
“NAC will work to improve our members’ services by pursuing the most advanced and efficient technologies, fostering awareness of and compliance with applicable regulations and promoting industry best practices. The NAC will provide a strong industry voice and will have the critical mass needed to assure the industry’s views and positions are known by the nation’s policymakers,” he added.
Renard maintained that Cardtronics was not on the board because it had not been on the board of the either of the two original organizations, and he denied knowing if the ATM giant is even a member, though he acknowledged that the organization's dues were based in part on the member's size so that presumably a much larger organization might have a much larger impact on the organization's income and budget.
