Many of us have contributed a signif- icant amount of our careers to the betterment of our industry with this involvement. We have done so with the attitude of an educator with a servant's heart. Through all the decades of this effort, we have encountered success and chal- lenges. We have no regrets in looking back at our efforts. We are also writing to convey our acceptance that we have been summarily dissolved effec- tive immediately, at the request of senior man- agement at IPC. We have respectfully ceased all actions in relation to our efforts as an IPC Board. We will make all efforts to continue to represent IPC in a professional and positive manner, as professionals serving in our indus- try. Many of us continue to serve the IPC com- munity in other capacities and plan to do so with excellence. With our determination to continue to be in- volved in the electronics industry, we are inform- ing IPC of the intentions of the Legacy Board Members, along with many others in the engi- neering/design community, to continue to serve the design professional. We have determined to form a new entity called the Printed Circuit En- gineering Association (PCEA). In this new organization, we seek to be strong advocates of The Digital Layout by Stephen V.
