AAMA is an international non-profit trade organization representing the manufacturers, distributors and part suppliers of the coin-operated amusement industry. AAMA was founded in 1981 by a small group of amusement coin-operated machine manufacturers concerned with the future of their industry. A Board of Directors, selected by its members, governs the AAMA. Committees work with the Association staff to develop programs to promote and protect the industry. For over 33 years, the AAMA has served its membership through legislative efforts, promotional arenas, foreign business development and much, much more.
