DECEMBER 2018 I SMT007 MAGAZINE 71 • The President's Award is given to IPC mem- bers who have exhibited ongoing leadership and have made significant contributions of their time and talent to the association and the electronics interconnect industry. Individuals can receive this award only once. • The IPC Rising Star Award is given to IPC mem- bers who have taken leadership roles and pro- vided support to standards, education, advoca- cy, and solutions to industry challenges. Their contributions have made a significant impact on IPC and industry within the past five years and will continue to have a lasting impact for many years to come. • The IPC Peter Sarmanian Corporate Recogni- tion Award honors and recognizes an IPC mem- ber corporation (or appropriate division) in the PCB industry (supplier, board manufac- turer, or OEM) that has made contributions to the industry while demonstrating support of IPC through participation in technical and/or management programs. While it is individu- als who volunteer their time and talent, cor- porate support can be critical to any individual (or group of individuals) continuing to partic- ipate. This award recognizes companies who have not been content to "let the other guy do it," but who have actively made our indus- try better. The award is named for former IPC Board Chairman Peter Sarmanian, former pres- ident of Printed Circuit Corporation. Compa- nies may receive this award more than once. • The IPC Stan Plzak Corporate Recognition Award honors and recognizes an IPC member corpo- ration (or appropriate division) in the electron- ics assembly industry (supplier, EMS compa- ny, or OEM) that has made contributions to the industry while demonstrating support of IPC through participation in technical and/or management programs. While it is individuals who volunteer their time and talent, corporate support can be critical to any individual (or group of individuals) continuing to contribute. This award recognizes companies who have not been content to "let the other guy do it," but who have actively made our industry bet- ter. The award is named for former IPC Board Chairman Stanley Plzak, former president of Pensar Corporation, and a founding member of the IPC Electronics Manufacturing Servic- es Industry Management Council. Companies may receive this award more than once. While none of the recipients has been named yet, we have learned that three indi- viduals will receive the President's Award, the Rising Star Award will be presented to four recipients, and three people will be hon- ored with the Dieter Bergman IPC Fellowship Award. The other awards will have one recipi- ent each. All of the awards will be announced at IPC APEX EXPO 2019 in San Diego, Califor- nia, from January 26–31. We will also explore these awards further in our I-Connect007 post-show "Show & Tell" publication to be published in February. SMT007 Images courtesy of IPC Flickr album. Reference 1.
