MVA Annual Meeting 2019 Information
Thursday — December 12, 2019
The Massachusetts Vending Association has planned an extremely different Annual Meeting for FY 2019-2020.
Employees of MVA operating members are the focus for this year. The MVA will be recognizing the “Best of the Best.” Awards will be given to an employee for going ‘above and beyond’ the duties expected. Each operating member will be sent a Survey Monkey to nominate their elite employees, one in each of four categories. Then, an independent team will rate, assess, and choose the employee that has shown tremendous dedication and responsibility toward the goal of making our industry the best that it can be!!! Therefore, please take the time to nominate your finest. Bring all of your best and have them learn about the MVA.
Beyond the Employee of the Year, the MVA has chosen a venue that beckons participation with employees, family & friends.

Welcome to the Massachusetts Vending Association’s web site.
We are a trade association made up of individuals, partnerships and companies engaged in the business of operating or servicing machines for the vending of merchandise or engaged in coffee services in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Our membership extends to individuals or entities engaged in the selling or servicing of vending or coffee machines, products or equipment. We welcome members whose office(s) may be located outside of Massachusetts but who may be doing business in Massachusetts and want to stay connected to the pulse of the industry in this state.
Our mission is to promote the vending industry and to protect its interest. Our goal is to share the camaraderie of our membership and to be united to fight distractions to our industry. The mission involves sharing common interests, learning from one another, uniting to fight the causes of vending through legislations and against the restrictions of regulations. We believe in the strength of our unity.
The Massachusetts Vending Industry is a state organization chartered by the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA). NAMA’s services include government relations (state, local and federal), education, legal counseling, newsletters, and national trade shows. We are proud members and supporters of the New England Vending Association’s annual spring meeting. The MVA is managed by a Managing Director who reports to the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors will meet as necessary to conduct the business of the association. We host meetings for our general membership to promote education about the industry and goodwill amongst our members. Each year we sponsor a golf outing for the promotion and benefit of the Massachusetts Vending Associations Scholarship Fund. The Scholarship Fund was established to benefit the families of our association and supporting it is one of the high principals of the Massachusetts Vending Association.
