IPC Expands Communications Industry-Wide with Introduction of New E-Publication IPC Outlook

Dec 14, 2011

In January 2012, IPC - Association Connecting Electronics Industries® will launch IPC Outlook, an electronic newsletter and Web portal for multimedia information about technology, standards, best practices and industry research. The new e-publication will focus on information that helps engineers and managers succeed in their jobs.

Based on feedback from a major communications study conducted by IPC in 2011, the distribution of IPC Outlook will be weekly and open to all individuals working in the electronics manufacturing industry. Regular features will include sections on cleaning; new product innovations; expert Q & A; defect analysis; materials; production floor; supply chain and IPC updates.

This is a major step for IPC,” says IPC Vice President of Marketing & Communications Kim Sterling. “Broadening our communications within the industry will reinforce IPC’s already-strong position as ‘the most trusted’ outlet for supporting the needs of industry companies, with critical and reliable information.”

IPC Outlook is available in preview version at www.IPCOutlook.org. The Web portal and newsletter will be advertiser-supported with sponsorships available at various levels, including discounts for IPC members.

IPC Review, our member newsletter, will transition into IPC Outlook and provide information that’s more timely and dynamic,” continues Sterling. “This is an exciting opportunity for more people in the industry to benefit from IPC’s commitment to education and information exchange.” Sterling confirms that IPC members will enjoy privileged access to more information and resources in the members-only section of the IPC website.

A subscription to IPC Outlook is free. Visit www.IPCOutlook.org to subscribe.
