Smart Card Talk : September 2012 : Volume 17 : Number 9

Purpose, With a Sense of Urgency

Dear members and friends of the Alliance,

It was just a few months after September 11, 2001 that I began my career with the Smart Card Alliance. At that time we were headquartered in New York City, less than a half mile from the World Trade Center. Traveling into work each day, surrounded by debris and smoldering steel, I struggled to find meaning in something that is still senseless. Now, 11 years later, I’ve not found answers but I have found value and purpose in the work that the Smart Card Alliance does each day, especially as it relates to security and identity measures. I expand more about this in the September issue of Smart Card Talk. As always, thank you for your support of the Alliance.
