54 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I AUGUST 2019 Last month's column highlighted the Mon- terrey Designers Council Chapter in Mexico. As promised, the featured chapter this month is the new Sonora Chapter, also in Mexico. The Sonora Chapter is aiming to establish its pres- ence in the global IPC Designers Council com- munity and set a vision for the future, includ- ing educational topics to explore and plans to expand membership. The core leadership of this newly formed chapter stems from an outstanding group of both young and experienced engineers com- ing off their successful CID certification. They have formed an excellent group that is very hungry for industry knowledge, eager to take this chapter and run with it, and to make their presence known in the IPC community. They're hyped and ready to go! Chapter Spotlight: Sonora by Roberto Ivan Villalba Gonzalez, Chairperson The Sonora Chapter was established after a CID class that took place in May 2019 in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. After a recommendation from the instructor (Stephen Chavez, MIT, CID+), class graduates decided to establish an IPC DC Chapter and elected a leadership team (Figure 1). Our chapter is composed of members from different engineering disciplines, such as manufacturing, testing, and product engineer- ing. We all participate in the different stag- es of design and manufacturing of electronic assemblies. A Bright Future: The Sonora Chapter The Digital Layout by Stephen V. Chavez, MIT, CID+, IPC DESIGNERS COUNCIL Figure 1: Leadership team (L–R), including Rodrigo Martin del Campo Alcocer (assistant chairperson), Roberto Ivan Villalba Gonzalez (chairperson), and Jacob Ivan Castellanos Juarez (technical officer).
