Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Monday at IPC APEX EXPO 2023, IPC, in partnership with IPC Publishing Group, launched an industry-specific quarterly publication (a digital publication with a special print edition for show participants), “IPC Community.” The publication celebrates member success while sharing the important work being done within the association to better serve its members and the global electronics manufacturing community.
With news and information to help readers be more competitive and profitable, the debut issue provides information on manufacturing and management best practices and solutions, emerging technologies, IPC standards, government relations issues, industry intelligence, advanced packaging, sustainability regional office updates, and more.
“The name ‘Community’ refers to all of us – the global team of electronics manufacturers throughout the vast supply chain,” said IPC President and CEO John Mitchell. “’IPC Community’ is our way of honoring and serving that connection, that community of individuals who share the same goal and who work together to build electronics better,” Mitchell added. “We’re excited about the possibilities of this quarterly magazine taking our ability to disseminate important information to the next level, all while making sure member stories and voices are reflected and commemorated.”
“Articles within ‘IPC Community’ are written to appeal to our members, to provide them with must-read, relevant and timely content,” said Brian Knier, IPC chief marketing officer. The editorial team is committed to providing news items that are of high value, but we encourage reader feedback. We want readers to share their success stories with us – to suggest any editorial content, please reach out to Managing Editor Michelle Te, at MichelleTe@ipc.org.”
“Developing this publication has been such a joy,” said Michelle Te. “It has been the members and readers that propelled our efforts forward in developing it and seeing it through. Their hard work and dedication to the electronics manufacturing industry are what have made the collaboration so special. I’m excited to share this first issue and look forward to the many more stories we will be able to tell in future issues.”
