The Chairman of the TAEC is the highest technical volunteer position with the IPC.

Parrish has been a member of the TAEC and Committee Chairman Council (CCC) for more than 10 years, and is a past recipient of the IPC President’s Award, and Chairman of the Board Award in recognition of his leadership and technical contributions.

After retiring as an electronics curriculum developer for the U.S. Air Force, Parrish continued to work with standards development and training as President of Manufacturing Technology Training Center Incorporated (MTTC) and worked with the Navy at China Lake during the generation of WS-6536 through MIL-STD-2000 Standards. In addition to his IPC Master Instructor status for IPC-A-610, IPC-A-620, J-STD-001, Parrish has previous DoD certifications for WS-6536, DOD-STD-2000 and MIL-STD-2000.
