SHOW & TELL MAGAZINE 2018 I I-CONNECT007 39 It was truly a pleasure speaking with both Linda Woody and Steve Tisdale. Here is my conversation with Linda. Patty Goldman: Congratulations, Linda, on this most prestigious award. Please start by telling me about yourself and your work background. Linda Woody: Thanks. I retired from Lockheed Martin after 36 years, and that was at the end of 2014. I've been retired for three years. Goldman: Really retired or consulting retired? Woody: Consulting retired, but pretty much what I'm doing is volunteer work for different organizations, specifically for PERM. I'm the former Chair of PERM, and I started chairing it in 2012 and I had two 2-year terms, so I did it through the end of 2015, and that was after I retired. I continue to be involved in PERM and to support the IPC with other documents. Goldman: First, tell me what PERM is. Woody: PERM is a council in the IPC, and it stands for Pb-free Electronics Risk Management. Goldman: How did you first get involved with IPC, and what prompted the involvement you just mentioned? My guess is you've been involved in much more than PERM over the years. Woody: Well, during my first 10 years at Lock- heed, I was in electro-optics research and development; I was kind of locked away in a lab. Then I was transferred to a manufactur- ing facility that supported the Orlando, Florida Linda Woody Dieter Bergman IPC Fellowship Award Recipient by Patty Goldman I-CONNECT007
