What is ICMA?

The International Card Manufacturers Association (ICMA) is the leading global card association for card manufacturers and personalizers supported by suppliers and other industry participants. For over 30 years, ICMA has been at the forefront of this rapidly changing industry, uniting the many companies involved in manufacturing and personalizing cards by creating a global organization for education, networking, and sharing new and innovative ideas.

As the complexity of card manufacturing and personalization has increased, so have the production, standards, quality, security and environmental issues surrounding these cards. ICMA has become a major player in the industry, providing both in-person and online education, networking, idea-sharing, and collaboration for companies around the globe, including, but not limited to The Americas, MEA, Asia and Europe.

Our Mission

As the leading global card association of manufacturers and personalizers supported by suppliers and other industry participants, ICMA’s mission is to promote the transaction card industry, along with the value of its products and services, by providing an independent forum to share knowledge and ideas.
