JULY 2019 I DESIGN007 MAGAZINE 37 A New Designers Council Chapter The Monterrey DC Chapter will no longer be the only chapter located in Mexico. In a re- cent IPC CID certification class that I taught at the Chamberlain Group located in Nogales, Mexico, the spirit of comradery, success, and knowledge sharing was truly overwhelming— so much so that the entire group made up of EEs wanted more than what one would typi- cally get from a four-day IPC CID certification class. They wanted to get involved" and be- come part of the industry IPC collective, espe- cially regarding PCBs/CCAs. They also wanted to represent their country in the best possible way as the next wave of EEs. The group is led by Heriberto (Heri) Ala- nis who is an extremely knowledgeable EE and very strong industry veteran with over 30 years of experience. Heri is also an excel- lent mentor for many of the young engineers within Chamberlain Group. He will have a strong support network to establish this new chapter. His core members, who will form the leadership of this new chapter and are all re - cent achievers of their IPC CID certification, are as follow: • Rodrigo Martin del Campo Alcocer • Roberto Ivan Villalba Gonzalez • Jacob Ivan Castellanos Juarez • Carlos Arturo Garcia Gamez • Rafael Antonio Gomez Sandoval • Marcos Eduardo Chavez Manon This new chapter from Nogales, Mexico, will be the spotlight for next month's column as they establish their presence in the global IPC Designers Council community of other local chapters. 2019 Training and Certification Schedule IPC Certified Interconnect Designer (CID) • August 6–9: Baltimore, MD • August 26–29: Markham, ON • September 6–9: Santa Clara, CA • September 19–22: Schaumburg, IL • October 8-11: Carmel, IN • October 21–24: Anaheim, CA • November 2–5: Raleigh, NC • November 5–8: Dallas, TX IPC Advanced Certified Interconnect Designer CID+ • September 6–9: Santa Clara, CA • September 10–13: Kirkland, WA • September 17–20: Schaumburg, IL • October 21–24: Anaheim, CA • November 2–5: Raleigh, NC • December 3–6: Manchester, NH Note: Dates and locations are subject to change.
