Conclusion There are so many interesting printed circuit engineering folks out there who we can learn from, and we will focus on the most interest- ing people in the PCEA from time to time. As a collective, we want to expand our diverse membership and foster healthy connections among people in printed circuit engineering. We believe that this will be a fulcrum that will help our members become inspired to con- nect and collaborate, and it will open doors to educate and positively contribute to the wider electronics industry. See you next month or sooner! DESIGN007 Kelly Dack, CIT, CID+, is the com- munication officer for the Printed Circuit Engineering Association (PCEA).
