Calling all prospective IPC board members - Candidates sought
Sep 07, 2005
IPC has announced that nine positions on IPC's Board of Directors will be up for election at the end of this year. Candidates are currently being sought to fill these vacant spots.
This fall, the IPC Nominating and Governance Committee, chaired by IPC Board Chairman Peter Murphy and comprised of five other Board members, will evaluate IPC Board candidates and create a slate for election. The Committee will review the nominees, analyzing each individual's business and professional experience, perspective and previous contribution to the Board, if applicable. Additionally, the Committee will confirm that each nominee satisfies the following qualifications:
Candidates should possess the knowledge, experience and expertise to assist the Board in fulfilling its responsibilities, as well as to assist the association in achieving its objectives.
As the IPC Board of Directors is dedicated to furthering the competitive excellence and financial success of IPC's members worldwide, Board candidates must also be able to think conceptually and with a long-term perspective, while welcoming diverse opinions.
Board members must evaluate ideas and policies for their benefit to all members, not merely speaking on behalf of their respective industry segments.
The candidate should be a senior level decision-maker from an IPC member company with a demonstrated commitment to IPC's long-range goals and objectives.
The candidate should be of the highest moral and ethical character and must exhibit strong leadership abilities, independence and objectivity.
The candidate must be willing to commit sufficient time to prepare for and effectively participate in Board and committee meetings and to represent IPC at professional meetings and conferences whenever possible. Board members are also expected to make themselves available outside of Board meetings for advice and consultation.
The candidate should be able to develop a good working relationship with other Board members and contribute to the Board's working relationship with IPC's senior management.
The final vote by IPC membership will be taken during the February 8, 2006, luncheon at IPC Printed Circuits Expo√í, APEX¬ģ and the Designers Summit exhibition and conference in Anaheim, Calif.
Industry members who know a qualified candidate willing to serve on the IPC Board for a two-year term, can fill out a nomination form at www.ipc.org/boardsurvey. Self nominations will also be accepted. Or, send an e-mail to IPC President Denny McGuirk (DennyMcGuirk@ipc.org) that includes your full contact information and that of the nominee
