This week’s virtual Annual Review webinar recording to brief members and the industry about 2020 initiatives and future association projects is now available.
The agenda included an update from outgoing Board Chairman Jeff Thomson, ON Semiconductor as he hands the reins over to Frank Flynn, Sager Electronics. The Board also discussed the year’s activities and ongoing GIPC initiatives, including the Design Registration project, paperless COC, research and training initiatives, and much more. David Loftus, ECIA President and CEO, went over the budget and finances. The 90-minute session ended with a report from ECIA Chief Analyst Dale Ford on recent survey and forecast data.
“This annual Board review has been very popular at the Executive Conference, which had to be cancelled this year,” noted David Loftus, ECIA President and CEO. “We feel it is important for ECIA members to have the opportunity to hear directly from the Board about the strategy and thinking behind the decisions that have been made. I am grateful to the Board and our ECIA Staff for enabling our Association to weather this challenging year admirably. Our finances are in very solid shape, and we look forward to getting back to a more normal 2021.”
