Thank you for your interest in the Independent Armored Car Operators Association, Inc. IACOA was founded in 1971 to provide an association for the growing number of privately owned armored car companies and to promote high standards of operation. Over the years, the organization has grown to include companies throughout the United States and the world. These companies, while independent and sometimes in competition with one another, work together within IACOA on education, legislative issues, transportation, and technological advances to ensure their customers receive the best service possible.
The Cash In Transit Industry is relatively small in size but looms large in the safe and efficient movement of our nation's wealth. Literally billions of dollars each day are transported safely around the United States and the world by armored vehicles and airplanes. Without this basic, secure, and reliable service, our financial markets would grind to a halt. IACOA provides its members benefits that include lobbying efforts at the federal level, workshops, a knowledge base (many of our members have been in the CIT business for over fifty years), networking, and an annual networking conference in which a majority of our Regular Members, Related Operating Members, and Industry Associate Members (vendors) attend.
The IACOA Annual Networking Conference is the focal point of our industry; speakers and attendees use the opportunity to learn, network, and modify their business plans for years to come.
