IPC COMMUNITY 56 SPRING 2023 Hall of Fame and Volunteer Excellence Awards In recognition and acknowledgment of their extraordinary contributions to the Wiring Har- ness Manufacturer's Association (WHMA) and the cable and wire harness industry, two long- time WHMA members were presented with cov- eted WHMA awards. A WHMA Hall of Fame and a WHMA Volunteer Excellence Award were pre- sented at WHMA's 30th Annual Wire Harness Conference on Feb. 16, 2023. This WHMA Hall of Fame Award recognizes extraordinary contributions with broad signifi- cance to the cable and wire harness industry and distinguished service to WHMA. Award recipients support the advancement of the industry, consis- tent with the goals and mission of WHMA. This is the highest level of recognition WHMA can give to a member and is based on exceptional merit over the long term. This year's inductee was Donnie Hill, Precision Mfg. Co. He was recognized for his long-term ser- vice and strategic and passionate leadership to WHMA as a board member, six years as WHMA board vice chair, key architect in the IPC/WHMA affiliation, as well as his many years promoting WHMA and its programs, and his contributions to WHMA's mission to lead, educate, and connect members globally. "WHMA Hall of Fame recipients represent the best of the best—strategic, visionary, and com- mitted. Donnie has demonstrated passion, ded- ication, and a continued commitment to propel the harness, cable and interconnect industry forward," said Joe DeMan, WHMA board chair. "WHMA is honored to acknowledge Donnie's hard work. He is truly a champion of our industry." The WHMA Volunteer Excellence Award honors individuals from WHMA-member companies who have demonstrated ongoing leadership in WHMA activities and have contributed significant time and talent to the association and the cable and wire harness industry. This year's recipient was Micah Durham of Schleuniger. He was recognized for his contri- butions to the wiring harness industry through service on the WHMA Board of Directors, signifi- cant contributions to the WHMA annual meeting, and Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo (EWPTE) program planning. "The leadership shown by Micah has made a significant impact on WHMA and will do so for years to come," said DeMan. "We are privileged that Micah has chosen to share his knowledge and expertise with WHMA and with the entire global wire harness manufacturing industry." WHMA award winner Micah Durham.
