IPC Needs Your Expertise at October 19 Defense Industrial Base Workshop


Reading time ( words)

IPC, in collaboration with WHMA and ECIA, has organized a workshop to support the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) in its ongoing assessment of the defense electronics industrial base. DoD is required by law to undertake this assessment and must deliver its report to Congress by January 31.

This assessment affords the electronics industry a meaningful and well-timed opportunity to help shape U.S. policies to strengthen the domestic manufacturing base.

To ensure that the report is reflective of the industry’s concerns, the DoD needs your help! DoD wants information and insights from you and your peers about key segments of the industry, including PCB, EMS, cable/wire harness, connectors and passive components.

DoD officials will be on hand to listen to industry discussion, and Dr. Robert Irie of DoD’s Military Industrial Base Policy Office will offer remarks to attendees.

IPC and its members have worked hard to raise concerns about the state of the U.S. defense electronics supply chain. We now have DoD’s attention. Let’s not miss this opportunity to communicate directly with DoD about the needs of the electronics industry.

Please register for this free event and please share the invitation with peers who may be interested in attending as well.
