REAL TIME WITH... IPC APEX EXPO 2022 SHOW & TELL MAGAZINE I I-CONNECT007 93 people at IPC meetings, with different takes on things, and we're able to use that here in our own business, and we can share our expe- riences and knowledge too. at can be some- thing that's useful to someone else. Goldman: at's nice. What was it like to get the phone call that you won the President's Award? Kane: at was kind of strange. "John Mitch- ell wants to talk to you." I had no idea, and it was quite a surprise. I really didn't know what it was about. Honestly, I half-expected to hear, "We're looking for some new blood. We need new committee leaders," and that may eventu- ally happen, but really, I wasn't expecting it, and it's an honor. I do appreciate it. You par- ticipate and you do your best, and I suppose, at some point, it's nice to have some recognition that you're actually doing something construc- tive and that's appreciated by your peers and by the staff. Goldman: at's good. Any other thoughts on IPC and working on committees? Kane: Committees can be fun; we have some laughs. I've gotten to know some of the people who are involved, committed, and participate. I enjoy the committee work even if it's over the phone, but I particularly value the face-to- face meetings where you get the side conversa- tions, and it's an immersive experience. I'm glad they're doing IPC APEX EXPO live this year. It's been two years. It was good meeting at Sum- merCom in Milwaukee, but APEX EXPO will have wider participation. I do enjoy it. ese are smart, interesting people, and it's a pleasure to interact with them. I imagine it's something like a Star Trek convention. You mingle with your fellow nerds, and nobody else gets us. Goldman: You all speak the same language and nobody outside this industry speaks that lan- guage, that's for sure. Kane: Yeah, except we don't do the weird uni- forms or anything like that. Goldman: Well, not yet. anks so much for your time and congratulations again.
