IPC’s Enterprise Membership Option Simplifies Dues Structure


Reading time ( words)

IPC’s membership department is constantly working to expand its portfolio of exclusive member benefits, services and membership options. With feedback from IPC members, the membership team has developed a more comprehensive dues structure to make it simple for all divisions, groups and employees of a company to access the rich suite of IPC member benefits.

“Our members spoke, we listened, and in an effort to increase engagement and ease of use, we are transitioning our Enterprise Membership to a revenue-based model which will give IPC the ability to optimally serve our membership efficiently and effectively,” said Tracy Riggan, IPC senior director, Member Support. “Additionally, this method aligns us with the structures of other associations of which many of our member companies may be a part,” she added.

Features of the Enterprise Membership option include:

  • Gives companies an "all in" membership option to replace site-count tiered discount structure, making it much easier for existing members to increase their engagement with IPC
  • Simplifies membership dues structure to prospective new members
  • Provides efficient membership processing for buyers and IPC staff
  • An upgraded listing in IPC’s buyer’s guide, IPC Global Marketplace

According to Riggan, individual site membership (2018 prices: $1,300 for primary, $1,100 for each additional when joining at the same time) is still available for those who prefer this option. “For companies that recognize the importance of giving multiple company sites access to IPC membership benefits, Enterprise Membership provides the same benefits as “single-site” membership to all employees at designated locations at significant savings over single-site membership dues” she said. “In addition, Enterprise members receive an upgraded listing in IPC Global Marketplace worth $500 and the assistance of the IPC team to help communicate the benefits throughout their company.”

The exhibit floor was sold out, and every single person I talked to was extremely optimistic about business in 2018.

The PCB Dinosaurs Get New Life at IPC APEX EXPO 2018

04/09/2018 | Dan Feinberg, FeinLine Associates, Inc.
The Order of the PCB Dinosaurs (originally called the PWB Dinosaurs—the sign of a true dino) was born because of a comment almost 20 years ago by my good friend Bernie Kessler. Back in the day, when suppliers like us became IPC members, we could only be associate members; unlike fabricators, we could not serve on the board and we could not lead key committees.
