Each IPC staff liaison will work with committee leaders to select a time for their meeting. Following the Summer- Com 2020 model, the meetings will be spread over a few weeks, so as not to conflict with the technical conference sessions. We will start posting meetings this month. While we won't be able to meet each oth- er in-person this year, I hope you will take advantage of the opportunities to network virtually and participate in live Q&As with speakers and instructors during profession- al development courses and the Technical Conference. I hope you'll spend some time talking to IPC Hall of Famers and Emerging Engineers and interact with new and expe- rienced managers at the Managers Forum. I encourage you to test your knowledge at our virtual trivia event. Your involvement in IPC APEX EXPO is di- rectly responsible for the show's success. We appreciate your flexibility, dedication, and in- put as we move from an in-person event to one that offers a vibrant virtual program. I hope that you'll join us March 8-12 for what promises to be an exciting virtual event.
