10 The PCB Design Magazine • December 2015 Mulvihill: The De- signers Council Ex- ecutive Board is a blue-ribbon group, i.e., open by invi- tation only. These thought leaders in the design commu- nity have all been working at the ad- vanced level for more than 20 years, and are drawn from every market sec- tor. They volunteer their time and thoughts to serve as the Steering Committee for IPC Design Programs. Members of the group meet twice every year in person with IPC staff, and consult informally throughout the year about the direction for IPC programs like Designer Certification, the De- signers Council, development of industry stan- dards focused on design, technical courses, and events associated with design. by Andy Shaughnessy You may have seen Anne Marie Mulvihill at the Design Forum during IPC APEX EXPO, rounding up the speakers and PCB designers and basically keeping everyone happy, often with a sarcastic comment or two. As the PCB design program manager for IPC, Anne Marie is in charge of making the train run on time for PCB designers, a task I would compare to herd- ing cats. When I told Anne Marie that we were covering the Designers Council for this issue, she jumped at the chance to help us out. Andy Shaughnessy: What is the designers coun- cil's basic mission? Anne Marie Mulvihill: The Designers Council's mission is to provide technical education that connects the design community. This connection makes technology interchange more efficient. Shaughnessy: how does the executive board func- tion? IPC DesIgners CounCIl: serving PCB Designers for Almost 25 Years feature interview Anne Marie Mulvihill
