2017 IEEE EMC Milwaukee Section Seminar


2017 is our 16th year in offering an IEEE EMC Seminar. This year’s program is focused on “Global Market Access” and the Hidden Challenges within the phases of Product Development. This Seminar brings together two Global Experts that understand this Challenge.

Elya Joffe is past President of both the IEEE EMC Society and the IEEE Product Safety Engineering Society. He has Lectured and Consulted Globally addressing both applications.

Mark Maynard is current President of the IEEE Product Safety Engineering Society and has extensive experience with Global Certifications, including Wireless Certifications.

Join us, seating is limited. Our Goal of providing an EMC Seminar that is Local, Affordable and Providing the Highest Level of Educational Value is again accomplished with Elya Joffe and Mark Maynard.
