Smart Card Talk : October 2012 : Volume 17 : Number 11

A Controlled Approach

Dear members and friends of the Alliance,

There’s a lot going on in the smart card industry. I know it seems as if my letters either begin or end with that statement, but at this juncture, we are particularly busy, and privileged to be so. The Smart Card Alliance is putting the final touches on our Annual Government Conference later this month, while at the same time working at an accelerated pace to keep up with the membership and activities in the EMV Migration Forum. All our work is focused around taking control of something and adding coordination, cooperation, participation and communication. If you’re not already part of either organization, I strongly encourage you to do so. I know that whenever I am actively involved, I feel as if I’m making a noticeable difference for the better. I invite you to do the same.

As always, thank you for your support of the Alliance.


Randy Vanderhoof
Executive Director, Smart Card Alliance
