The second is to help lawmakers and regulators to put the necessary legislation and policy in place to protect both the players involved and the public.

Lobbying to congressman to have the most beneficial laws for us.

The third is to help educate consumers and retailers about the positive facets of payments made with mobile devices.

Create mass marketing campaign to convince consumers to buy new phones with this capability and use it to make more profits for us and our services which we will charge for.
Buy new phones? A lot of the newest
smartphones are NFC-Capable.

Galaxy Nexus
Galaxy S3

I probably missed a few. NFC is becoming
increasingly more, and more standard.

Kind of odd

That Verizon is part of Inititive along with Google considering that they block VZ phone access to the Google Wallet app in the Play Store. lol
So does T-Mobile and AT&T, as far as I know. At least for anything non-Galaxy-Nexus. I assume that's actually why they want to be a part of this coalition, so that their insecurities about the system can be addressed, and they can be protected. Whe...

Was it really necessary to create a new lobbying organization for this rather than have CTIA take this issue under their umbrella? Eventually all the small fry carriers will be clamoring to join and you'll just have a redundant organization.
Completely agree. This is getting just as tiring as the damn patent bickering.
