Dear Members and Friends of the Alliance,

This month, I take you inside the process of how we are shaping the strategic direction for the Smart Card Alliance for the next three to five years that will hopefully correspond to the future of smart card and secure chip technology.

We spent a few months in advance of our annual board of directors strategic planning retreat working with global management consulting firm Oliver Wyman to independently assess strengths and weaknesses of the Alliance and the opportunities and threats to further smart card adoption in North America and Latin America.

In short, the planning meeting energized the Alliance as an organization. The research and resulting information presented by the consultants showed us that we are a nimble group whose greatest assets–our members and their collective knowledge–can be leveraged even greater within the industry.

Thank you for your support of the Smart Card Alliance.
