"Meet IACA's Members" The Bank of Canada’s Currency Department

We are very pleased that the second organization to participate in our “Meet IACAs Members” initiative is the Bank of Canadas Currency Department.  We had an excellent response to our introduction of Authentix; the link to their piece on the opening page of IACA’s website received the highest number of hits during the week of its posting.

 The “Meet IACA’s Members” program offers our members the opportunity to introduce themselves to each other by submitting a short article on a subject of general interest.  We plan to publish introductory articles on our website 4 or 5 times per year, alternating between our central bank and company members.

We are anxious to introduce all of the organizations that belong to our group.  We encourage you to submit a “Meet IACA’s Members” article.   To become one of our spotlighted members, please contact Eugenie Foster to discuss the details.
