IPC’s efforts in government relations and advocacy have been pivotal in getting legislation like the CHIPS Act passed. IPC has coined the phrase “silicon to systems” to highlight that things like chips can only function within a complete electronics system, which depends on a much broader electronics supply chain than just semiconductors. They continue to work ardently to make sure our industry’s voices are heard.

In February, IPC President and CEO Dr. John W. Mitchell was back in Washington, D.C., representing our industry in a meeting convened by the U.S. Department of Commerce, where he discussed workforce issues and how to ensure that our businesses have the workforce they need. In this audio interview, he reviews his concerns and solutions on workforce development.
