More ideas long-term were to have a one-page high level, long-range view for the Board to agree on what CIECA does, crafted into an article, for Stacey to run with for a fresh marketing campaign.
The first step is to have the Board create five bullet points on what we do, an elevator speech. It was mentioned that Stacey stared that over a year ago and it went nowhere. Perhaps it is time to revive her efforts.
Other potential speakers include USAA-State Farm Blockchain project, Mitchell, 3D printing with Divergent, and EV Battery with Argonne National. Caryn Smith from ARA agreed to moderate a recall panel, and potential panelists include Paul D’Adamo, Don Porter, an OEM and insurer. Don Elliott brought up Mobi--mobility open blockchain initiative as a potential topic. He noted it seemed like it paralleled CIECA.”
Ginny noted she is attempting to acquire a speaker(s) on EV and the looming issue of recycling batteries or discarding them. These are the Lithium Ion batteries only, the lead-based batteries are already being recycled. Andy Latham is a known subject expert and she has contacted him.

The discussion led into a new way to discuss the BMS. IFX, the workings of whom we followed when developing the BMS, discussed them as business conversations. The work can be found at www.IFXForum.org/standards.
