Smart Card Talk : November 2011 : Volume 16 : Number 11

It’s occurred to me that the momentum that usually starts to slow down right before the holiday season is showing no signs of letting up. The enthusiasm drawn from our 10th annual Government Conference has energized all of us, and redefined our commitment to work together to promote smart card technology and applications through education, events, forums and numerous other opportunities. A robust Smart Card Alliance is crucial to the healthy future of the industry, and I’m pleased that our growth, in membership activities, innovative thought, output and interest, is at an all-time high. We’ve established our mission and goals, and continue to work hard as we keep an eye on the future while identifying moments in the present. Thank you for your continued involvement, and I commend all of your contributions and achievements in our industry. As always, I welcome your feedback and invite you to contact me if I can be of any help.
