IPC COMMUNITY 76 SPRING 2023 Leading the Way The IPC Education Foundation is proud of its IPC Student Chapter Program, which started in 2019 at Auburn University and has expanded to more than 50 schools. Our goal is to enhance collaboration among students at their university or college. The chapters are student driven, which provides an opportunity for them to develop their leadership, as well as professional and personal skills. For only a $40 membership fee, students realize several benefits of joining a student chapter, including scholarships and awards, select sets of industry courses, access to IPC standards, and regular connections with industry professionals. We want to share just a few comments we've received from our student chapter leaders. The knowledge and experience they've gained is so great that it's hard to measure. We are grateful to the industry for their participation, especially because we know these types of activities help keep students engaged and moving forward. By Charlene Gunter du Plessis and Wendy Gaston, IPC Education Foundation If you are a member of industry wanting to participate in a local chapter, a student wanting to join or start a student chapter, please send an email to WendyGaston@ipc.org. IPC EDUCATION FOUNDATION Gaird Brock Michigan Tech University Gaird Brock, president of the IPC Student Chapter at Michigan Tech University, says, "The goals of the student network on campus are embedded in education, industry con- nections, and projects, which demonstrate theoretical concepts in a lab setting. Both the scholarships being offered and the leadership experience are big benefits to being a chapter member." His chapter has engaged with the industry through hands-on workshops, facility/ plant tours, and training on different soldering techniques. A Focus on the IPC Student Chapter Program
