IPC Government Relations Committees

The IPC Government Relations (GR) Committees work to advance IPC members' interests by promoting policies to foster economic growth, job creation, and the international competitiveness of the electronics interconnection industry. Committee members work closely with their peers and with IPC professional staff to develop policy positions and educate policymakers on government policy issues that affect IPC member companies, including tax, trade, workforce, environmental and technology policy issues.
