He mentioned  the EU opportunity and the ideas Scott Perry mentioned at the top of the meeting and then the Governmental and large enterprise for recognizable standards and documentations–ISO thread. He believes that our goal with our stack is to encourage the establish a common way of doing things (i.e. interoperability). We need implementation of these protocols so that we can have an end to end strategy to achieve our goals. He mentioned an opportunity to have a directed fund for growth from the LF to help us grow toward a common set of goals to work toward via ISO. This will help standardize commonality for digital trust within the market. Scott Perry has two ideas to share here; 1. he would like to have an accreditation scheme to help drive revenue for compliance via ToIP (i.e. certificate/fee), work would need to be done to help accredit since they're an ISO service company. 2. We can consider having a nominal cost ($250) for all contributor members to help drive engagement and help generate additional revenue for the foundation. Drummond Reed mentioned that he believes we need to resources to continue to grow ToIP and said that Avast is all in to help grow our mission. He believes that native Avastians can help with growth strategy team to help continue our efforts to grow. Judith Fleenor proposed putting together a small group for a growth strategy to help focus on building a plan; Bryn Robinson-Morgan volunteered to participate, Drummond Reed also mentioned that he would participate, John Jordan agreed to have the May 4th date to focus on this discussion.
