It was our intention to present the leading experts on the subjects our members have informed us most concern them related to the ever increasing importance of e.commerce to todays' economy. What was only a few months ago an interest in exploiting the Internet as an addition to the major activities of our organizations has become a need to protect oneself from being overtaken by new competitors taking your market share by the introduction of virtual competition, that changes the very playing field of business and communication, (just consider the effect has had on retail booksellers).

Each of the experts made a short presentation on their subject, explaining precisely what they do, why they do it and who they do it for, thereby introducing our guests to a complete overview of each of our chosen subjects. After our experts had introduced themselves they then formed a panel to answer the questions of our guests and members in our usual Luncheon Discussion format.

The panelists have contributed the White Papers listed below for those of our members unable to attend the Forum and both sesions were audio recorded. A combined recording of both sessions (3 hours) is now available.

Some of the comments we received from the guests after the meeting:
