ECIA GIPC Call for Subject Matter Expert (SME) Participation

The Global Industry Practices Committee (GIPC) provides a forum to discuss processes in the authorized channel that drive best practices within our industry. The GIPC works to identify common global issues, formally organize with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to research the issues, provide guidance and areas for consideration, and then help drive adoption with the ECIA Board of Directors and Councils. 

This activity results in the construction of guidelines, specifications, position papers and best practice documents for the electronic components authorized channel. 

The GIPC is actively looking for various SMEs that specialize in cybersecurity. If you are interested or have questions, contact Don Elario at [email protected].

Winning the War for Talent - Part 6
Wednesday | December 14 | 3 pm ET | Register Now

ECIA has partnered with the Association Education Alliance to bring you this webinar. 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? Join presenter, Alex Chausovsky of the Miller Resource Group, for this engaging discussion.
