My former colleague at TI, Brian Narveson is a board member at PSMA; Stephen Oliver from Navitas, whom I have known and worked with for years is the Chairman of the Board and Patrick LeFevre from PowerBox is Energy Management Committee Co-Chair at PSMA. These respected industry leaders/experts and so many others in Power Management lend tremendous credibility to the work that PSMA is doing.
The purpose of the Association is to enhance the stature and reputation of its members and their products, improve their knowledge of technological and other developments related to power sources, and educate the entire electronics industry, plus academia, as well as government and industry agencies as to the importance of, and relevant applications for, all types of power sources and conversion devices.
The PSMA mission is to integrate the resources of the power sources industry to more effectively and profitably serve the needs of the power sources users, providers and PSMA members.
The PSMA Board of Directors is looking for one or more volunteers interested in providing leadership for the Energy Management Technical Committee. The membership in all the PSMA Technical Committees is comprised of individual volunteers from both Member and non-Member Companies who have a technical, business or personal interest and are involved in the focus of the specific Technical Committee.
An important role of the Technical Committee leadership is to coordinate the mission and focus of the committee to address the current issues and changing trends in the technologies. The Technical Committees normally meet monthly via teleconference for one hour to discuss special Projects that PSMA might fund that would benefit the membership and industry, to consider and plan Industry Sessions for upcoming APEC meetings, and to support of the PSMA Power Technology Roadmap with relevant Webinars and technical content. The leadership position is the chair for each meeting and is responsible for generating the monthly meeting agenda and to facilitate the meeting to meet the needs of the participants.
The benefits of Technical Committee leadership are many including:
- Being acknowledged as an important participant and factor in the technical community
- Opportunity to interact with National, State and Independent Agencies involved with the specific technologies
- Anticipate and influence changes especially in regulations
- Identify your company as an important participant and contributor in the industry segment
- An expanded ability to network with others in the industry
