IPC Announces 2019 Standards Committee Meeting Schedule
Because IPC APEX EXPO will be held in January for the next five years, IPC will move its standards development committee meetings normally scheduled in Fall to June in 2019. This decision follows a survey of the standards committees where respondents indicated they would prefer to hold in-person standards development meetings in the summer months to have ample time to work on documents. IPC previously hosted its Fall Committee Standards Development meetings in conjunction with SMTA International (SMTAI).
“IPC’s standards committee leaders and members said they would appreciate having in-person standards development meetings spread over the course of six months, allowing them ample time to work on standards activities via e-mail and teleconference in between the in-person events,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO.
“SMTA has been a gracious host and provided a perfect setting for IPC’s Fall Committee Meetings in the Chicago area for many years. We thank them for this partnership and look forward to working with the association on other events, such as the upcoming High-Reliability Cleaning and Conformal Coating Conference next month,” added Mitchell.
IPC’s Summer Standards Development Committee Meetings will take place June 15-20, 2019 in Raleigh, N.C. IPC’s next in-person committee meetings will take place January 26-31, 2019 at IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego.
