National Automatic Merchandising Association Evaluates Changes To Build Membership

The National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) is analyzing a host of benefit changes designed to increase the value of membership, NAMA Interim President and CEO Dan Mathews, NCE5, CCS announced. 

According to Mathews, over the past few years the organization has not only broadly expanded many programs such as government affairs and a world-class trade show, but has launched sweeping and unprecedented new initiatives including the industry growth strategy (IGS) designed to give the industry a positive PR boost and attract more consumers to vending. At the same time, NAMA has not raised prices for the past three years.

The organization is evaluating several strategies designed to ensure that the organization continues to deliver the very best resources created specifically to help members of the industry grow and prosper at the very lowest possible cost to its members.

In discussing the changes Mathews said in a prepared statement, “All of us at NAMA continue to evaluate how we can not only continue to support important new initiatives, but also best deliver the most ongoing value to our members. We want to make sure that our members have access to the most valuable information and the finest programs and resources, and that we also reward them with significant price discounts that non-members simply do not enjoy, or, in many cases have no access to at all.” 

Concluded Mathews, “We’ll be in touch with more details soon, but until then feel free to contact me with any ideas or suggestions you may have to enhance our progress.  On behalf of everyone at NAMA we thank you for your support and look forward to continuing to deliver the resources our industry needs to help it grow and prosper.”
