In recognition of her extraordinary contributions to IPC and the electronics industry, Patricia (Patty) Goldman, managing editor, I-Connect007, was honored with the IPC Raymond E. Pritchard Hall of Fame Award. Presented at IPC APEX EXPO® at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the IPC Hall of Fame Award represents IPC's highest level of volunteer recognition.

For more than three decades, Goldman has donated countless hours to IPC and her list of IPC achievements is vast. She has served as chairman of IPC’s Process Effects Subcommittee, chair of the Process Control Committee, chair of the Woven Glass Reinforcement Task Group and has been an active participant on numerous other committees including the Video Steering Committee and the Technical Program Committee. Goldman is a current and active member on the following standards committees: 3-11, 3-12E, 4-10, 5-32E and 8-41.

She received the IPC President’s Award in 1984 and served as chair of the TAEC from 1998–2000. Goldman is author of a number of technical papers on subjects such as bondable gold, pink ring, direct metallization, electrophoretic photoresist, and flat glass for improved signal integrity.

"IPC is privileged to have Patty as such an active member of so many committees and deeply experienced with technical issues that impact our industry," said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. "This Hall of Fame tribute is in recognition of all her years of diligent volunteer work, helping to advance the electronics industry and IPC."
