The EMA/ERA (Co-sponsored with Electronic Manufacturers Assn.) New Year Kick-Off & Networking Social on January 31 in Portland, Oregon. Approximately 60 people attended and we treated to some great food and drink.

Every attendee was provided an opportunity to introduce themselves and provide a brief description of their business.  This stimulated some solid conversation and an opportunity to see folks that you may have not seen in quite some time.  Several attendees mentioned that they had met some key target folks and actually generated some new business opportunities during the evening.

Future functions were discussed with the big one being the NEDME Show in October which is in the planning stages now.  If there are any volunteers out there please contact Art Henderson from ERA.
