OCTOBER 2021 I DESIGN007 MAGAZINE 91 IPC APEX EXPO Jan 22–27, 2022 San Diego Convention Center San Diego, CA PCB East 2022 April 11–13, 2022 Marlborough, MA Spread the word. If you have a significant electronics industry event that you would like to announce, please send me the details at, and we will con- sider adding it to the list. Conclusion It is oen said there is strength in diversity. ere is power in multiple points of view. As a newer organization (and like many oth- ers), the PCEA has experienced the folly of groupthink and being over-represented by any one industry discipline. Likewise, we've also experienced the challenges presented by invit- ing open expression representing diversity of thought and multiple points of view. As we move forward, we are thankful believers that success in an organization and an industry as a whole is far better off aer considering the perspectives of an entire body—not just the arm or leg. As a nonprofit, we don't ask for much. But this month we are asking you to help us in our quest for diversity. We look forward to hearing from any "ankles, knees, hips, and heads" out there who wish to make a difference. We love the diverse perspectives shared in Design007 Magazine. We can't wait to work together within our chapters to pour these perspectives into the collaborative blender of our organi- zation. Hopefully, someday, we can become inspired to shake hands, learn, collaborate, and pour out a smoothie of PCB data—or anything for that matter—which would be healthy for our entire industrial body. We hope you agree and can help us. Press pulse twice, blend, and drink up. See you next month or sooner!
