Mel Parrish to Chair IPC's Top Standards Committee
Bannockburn, IL — IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries
has elected Mel Parrish, FSO and director of training materials, STI Electronics Inc., to chair the IPC Technical Activities Executive Committee (TAEC) for a two-year term. Elected to the position by the chairs and co-chairs of all IPC standards groups, Parrish took over the helm of IPC's top standards development oversight committee from Leo Lambert of EPTAC Corporation, during the TAEC meeting at IPC APEX EXPO
2010, on April 6 in Las Vegas.
"I'm greatly honored to be selected to serve as the TAEC Chair and I certainly have some very large shoes to fill with those that have served in the past," said Parrish. "Our standards and industry forums fill a more significant role today than ever, especially with the globalization of our industry. Looking forward, I would encourage every effort to continue our progress as a cooperative forum for our diverse industry segments for the common good of the industry. I'm certain there will be challenges that we can overcome together. It's all about the people that contribute for the benefit of the industry." No stranger to IPC volunteer work, Parrish has been active in IPC technical committees for more than 23 years. He chairs the IPC Product Assurance General Committee, responsible for oversight of documents such as IPC-A-600, IPC-A-620 and IPC-A-610. Parrish has been a member of the TAEC and Committee Chairman Council (CCC) for more than 10 years, and has been a past recipient of the IPC President's Award in recognition of his leadership and technical contributions.
