CMIA - Dedicated to the success of our members
Welcome to the Coin Machine Industries Association of Massachusetts “CMIA”. CMIA is a non-profit organization of operators, distributors and manufacturers who share the common goal of promotion and survival of the coin-operated machine industry in Massachusetts. CMIA monitors and addresses issues that affect amusement games in several areas, such as the State Legislature, courts, regulations such as the State Police and the Massachusetts Gaming Commission. These impacts can either be of a positive or adverse nature. One very important issue we dealt successfully with in recent years is strong advocacy and eventual repeal of Sunday license fees, which continues to save members thousands of dollars.
The businesses that make up the organization are from various levels of the industry, specifically operators, distributors, manufacturers and suppliers of various items and services that are essential to the industry.
CMIA helps its members remain competitive and successful in a rapidly changing environment.
