ECIA welcomes new executives to the ECIA Executive Committee and various boards of directors: the Association, the ECIA Foundation, and the EDS Board.
"Executive volunteers such as these fine individuals are the lifeblood of our association. We are deeply grateful for their willingness to share their time and talent," commented John Denslinger, ECIA CEO and president. "This year looks to be another challenging one for our industry with plenty of domestic uncertainty as the new administration sets forth its agenda. Within our own industry, we see continued consolidation and margin pressure, and the usual disruptive forces of new technology and globalization. Despite these concerns, member 2017 forecasts are in the range of 4-6% positive which says a lot about our industry: we are resilient, innovative, and adapt well to change," he concluded.
