Workplaces that Work
TODAY Wednesday | October 5, 2022 | 12 pm ET | Register Now 

Despite a dramatic drop in COVID cases and the end of mobility restrictions, office use in the US remains muted. Business executives are tasked with maintaining a strong organizational culture, promoting collaboration amongst staff and maximizing work productivity while acknowledging employees desire for greater flexibility to choose where they work. While there is no one-size-fits-all approach, this session will discuss best practices for determining the right workplace experience and policies, as well as how to best implement and manage these changes. 

Speakers: Brad Wilner, Executive Vice President CBRE and Manny Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President CBRE

Winning the War for Talent - Part 5
Wednesday | October 19, 2022 | 3 pm ET | Register Now

The war for talent is escalating. Some organizations are ill-prepared to handle the challenges of an increasingly complex labor market, shackled by the “we’ve always done it this way” mentality. Others are thriving, armed with analytical insights and surrounded by allies, allowing them to snap up highly performing “impact players” and supercharge their growth. What kind of an organization are you? More importantly, what kind do you want to be in the future?

Speakers: Alex Chausovsky, Director of Analytics & Consulting, Miller Resource Group

ECIA Publishes New Document Tracking Impact of Pandemic on Employees

‘Workplace Disruption - The Impact on Company Culture’ focuses on long-term challenges

The ECIA Councils assigned the GIPC (Global Industry Practices Committee) to review the NC/NR document published by NEDA in 2002. A work group was formed composed of distributors, manufacturers, and manufacturers’ representatives.

It is their intent to help clarify the use of the NC/NR process in the electronic component authorized channel by publishing updated industry guidelines and communicating these best practices to the industry, both ECIA members and non-members. Read the full press release. 

Member of the Week 

We are pleased to announce AEM, Inc. as ECIA’s Member of the Week. 

AEM, Inc. (formerly American Electronic Materials, Inc.) was founded in 1986 and began its first commercial activity in 1988. Phenomenal growth since its inception had earned AEM the distinction of being listed three times on the Inc. 500 list of "America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies". AEM's outstanding achievements earned a Commendation Letter from then President Bill Clinton. 

In 1995, AEM merged the key technical staff of Wallace Technical Ceramics, Inc. into its organization. That same year, AEM acquired the Mepcopal high-reliability thick-film fuse line from Philips/Copal. These mergers and acquisitions represented a logical combination of assets and technical abilities to achieve a full spectrum of SMT components. Since 1995, AEM has used its technological expertise to successfully grow its current limiting micro-fuse production and holds a dominant position in the circuit protection market in the aerospace industry. AEM is the sole supplier of FM12 style high-reliability fuses listed on the DSCC approved QPL. AEM high-reliability fuses are used by NASA and every other major manufacturer of satellite, spacecraft and space related hardware throughout the world. AEM is also the world's sole manufacturer of high-reliability ferrite chip beads designed for space and military use.

ECIA is thankful for AEM’s membership!
