Each year, almost before the applause dies for the last conference speaker at the October Executive Conference, a new group of ECIA members starts to coalesce into a working committee. This year's planning committee has been meeting since early this year, and already the program is taking shape. Chaired by Melanie Pizzey of TTI, Inc, the group includes a number of first-time committee members, ensuring a fresh and innovative conference program.
Members of the 2019 Executive Conference Planning committee include:
Catherine Cote, Cypress Semi; Robert Derringer, Crouzet; Bob Garcia, Ferrari Technical Sales; Teri Ivaniszyn, Digi-Key Electronics; Scott Jones, AEM Group; Dawn Lowery, Sumer Incorporated; Todd McAtee, Mouser Electronics; Paula Renfrow, TTI, Inc.; Caroline Wells, Omron; and David West, Arrow Electronics.
"We expected great things from this group, and have not been disappointed," commented Debbie Conyers, who is ECIA Vice President of Member Engagement. "The level of engagement and responsiveness has been impressive, and we have been zeroing in on some interesting topics and potential speakers. Expect a first look at the Conference Program at EDS in May."
The 2019 ECIA Executive Conference is October 20-22, 2019 at the Loew's Chicago O'Hare. The Executive Conference is the only conference where senior management teams from the electronics industry's leading companies - representing the entire supply chain - gather to understand and address cross-enterprise challenges. Gain access to industry experts and knowledge, forge the relationships that can make a real difference, and learn how to remove roadblocks to success. Save the date and plan to join this must-attend event - there is no other that offers an in-depth look at the electronics components industry and is as geared towards industry-specific education and fostering meaningful relationships across this section of the supply chain network. It's the one conference you can't afford to miss.
Hotel reservations are available now, book your room at the Loew's Chicago O'Hare. Conference registration will be available in June.
