IPC Government Relations Team Offering Education and Fun at IPC APEX EXPO


Reading time ( words)

This year’s IPC APEX EXPO is going to be especially interesting for anyone interested in government policies that affect the electronics industry and what IPC is doing to influence them. Your IPC Government Relations team is preparing a variety of activities to educate and engage you on these issues.

IPC places a high priority on government relations because there are so many public policy debates that have huge impacts on our members, from trade and tariffs to environmental regulations, research and development, minerals sourcing, and workforce skills.

Our “GR” team educates government officials on these issues from our members’ perspective, advocating for policies that will help our members prosper and grow. We also serve as an information resource for you, answering your questions about what to expect and how to comply with new laws.

Here are the highlights of what IPC will be doing in San Diego from a GR perspective. We hope you will join us.
