Call for Environmental Compliance & Regulatory Subject Matter Experts (SME's)

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 members on this committee work to identify common global problems and issues, formally organize with Subject Matter Experts to research the issues, provide guidance and areas for consideration, and then help drive adoption with the ECIA Board of Directors and Councils. 

To assist in this cause, the GIPC is currently looking for Manufacturer Environmental SME's. Please inform your colleagues and tell them to contact Don Elario at [email protected].
