MIG is Recruiting Candidates for the 2015 MIG Governing Council

Dear MIG member,

On behalf of MEMS Industry Group (MIG), I am pleased to announce the launch of recruiting candidates for the 2015 Governing Council (term: January 1, 2015-December 31, 2017). The annual process of developing and augmenting our board leadership is critical in order to grow, evolve, and improve our mission to be the trade association advancing MEMS across global markets. We can only succeed in implementing our mission through the efforts of our board volunteers. MIG's Governing Council strives to recruit a variety of applicants for consideration and encourages diverse candidates to apply. If you are interested in taking on the opportunity of a MIG Governing Councilor, please read description of the Governing Council and board member responsibilities shown below. If interested, please send your bio and brief description of your interest in joining the MIG Governing Council to Karen Lightman by May 24, 2014; all information will be kept confidential. Applications will be reviewed and considered by the MIG Governing Council and announced before MEMS Executive Congress US, November 5-7, 2014 at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, AZ. You will be required to attend an in-person meeting on Wednesday, November 5. 

MIG Governing Council Responsibilities:
Members of MIG’s Governing Council represent the varied applications of MEMS technology and the varied sizes of existing MEMS companies. Members encompass both technical backgrounds and/or business development backgrounds, so that the MEMS Industry Group can benefit from knowing the goals and concerns of both faculties, and therefore can maintain a direction that will benefit the MEMS industry as a whole. 

The Governing Council meets each spring (in Pittsburgh) and November (prior to the MEMS Executive Congress) to chart and discuss the future direction of the MEMS Industry Group; and conducts regular conference calls every six weeks (on average). In addition, members of the Governing Council agree to provide regular input to MIG staff, as needed, by email, online meeting, and phone. The Governing Council agrees to support the efforts of MIG by advocating the greater commercial development of MEMS technology and by financially supporting MIG by becoming members. Each position on the MIG Governing Council carries a minimum of one 3-year term to be extended up to two times, at the joint wishes of the MIG Governing Council and the individual Governing Councilor; not to exceed six years.

Thank you,
Karen Lightman
Executive Director
MEMS Industry Group
