Welcome to the IACOA website! I want to thank you for this opportunity to serve as your President for the term year 2013–2014. My goal is to successfully
continue the membership drive started last year by Travis Maxim and the 2012 Board of Directors.
If we think about it, we all started as a small service provider, some in CIT, some in ATMs, and some in cheque cashing. IACOA conventions provided us with networking opportunities and information that increased our knowledge of the industry and allowed us to plan ahead, to expand, and to make each of our operations efficient and profitable.
For twenty years, large CIT companies have purchased IACOA members to expand their service area. In response, IACOA needs to reach out to small service providers and help them grow their companies. Doing so requires a shift in the IACOA mission statement and its bylaws. I have formed a committee to review the changes necessary and I want your input. Cliff Jordan is the bylaw committee Chairman, so please send him your comments directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to seeing you at our next convention in Fort Worth, Texas, May, 16–19, 2014. Save the Date!
