Council Member Recognition

The Smart Card Alliance Industry Councils are led by members, with deliverables developed by member volunteers. The Councils have made significant contributions to the smart card industry through publishing education and outreach material for different markets, holding educational events, webinars and workshops on key topics, responding to issues in the media, developing industry comments and positions on key government initiatives, and establishing relationships with other key industry groups.

Each year, the Smart Card Alliance recognizes the top individual contributors in each of the industry councils and the council “honor roll”– the individuals who were leading contributors and participants in the council projects and activities.
