74 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I MAY 2021 East, another "hot" event, is currently set for an in-person event, but time will tell if it holds true, moves into the virtual world, or simply gets cancelled. PCEA will have some presence as several members will either attend or be active participants. Time will tell as these next few months unfold. Even still, we are in full stride as we serve up awesome online virtual chapter events. Our education committee works to provide great industry content, so watch our website for new content and new activities for 2021. If you have anything to do with printed cir- cuit engineering, I highly recommend you get involved with and join the PCEA collective. is industry waits for no one and it evolves so quickly, so keeping your skill set and education up to date and relevant is key to your career success. It's important to stay on point and con- tinue your professional development. By join- ing the PCEA collective, your percentage of long-term professional development increases significantly. We each control our own destiny and how our careers unfold. As one of my long- time mentors told me early in my career: "You are your own best investment. You will only be as good as how much you invest in your- self. It is your responsibility alone, and no one else's, to continue to grow and develop as you strive to achieve success in your career." So, with that said, I highly recommend you take advantage of the PCEA collective and all it has to offer; it can potentially set you up with a better opportunity for success. Refer to our column and the PCEA website,, to stay current on up-and-coming industry events. ere are many free webinars, so take advantage of these opportunities. If you have not yet joined the PCEA collective, I highly encourage you to do so. I wish everyone and their families health and safety. Best of success to all as we head into the summer months. Warmest Regards, —Steph Next Month Spring has sprung and PCB engineers are on the move.
