EIPC Elects Officers for the Two Years Ahead


Reading time ( words)

On the occasion of their Winter Conference held in Lyon, France on 1st & 2nd February 2018, the Board members of the EIPC held a Board Meeting and after a closely-run ballot the following were elected to their posts.

Chairman: Alun Morgan
Vice-Chairs: Oldřich Šimek and Emma Hudson. Emma will also take over as Treasurer.

Alun Morgan was a director of Isola GmbH prior to retirement, and Oldrich Simek runs his own company in Czech Republic, Pragoboard. Emma Hudson is the well-known face of UL in Europe. Alun continues to prove that retirement is merely a half-way marker in a working life, and has not eased up in the slightest; Oldřich Šimek is a pioneering PCB engineer through and through, whilst Emma Hudson displays the skills required to maintain a work/life balance that seems to include an extra day in each week.

The Winter Conference this year was acclaimed as a resounding success. With a record number of delegates attending a far-from-normal programme of  presentations on matters commercial, technical and intricate, the ‘interval’ comprised a visit to the Alstom factory where they make large train sets for grown-ups.

Keeping EIPC on the right tracks at all times, Executive Director Kirsten Smit-Westenberg said that she was “delighted to have had such a massive attendance to one of their conferences, a truly international mix of both delegates and speakers and with all the indications an industry going through a buoyant period.”
