Take Action and Support the Department of Defense Printed Circuit Board Executive Agent

The DoD PCB Executive Agent program is intended to address many important issues that will ultimately assist the industry and help your company. Although Congress directed the DoD to create this program, the program is unfunded. Without government funding, the PCB Executive Agent program cannot begin to address the important tasks that will ensure the future supply of electronic interconnect products to the military.

We need your help immediately to get your Member of Congress to support funding the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Executive Agent program. We recommend that you contact your elected official’s office immediately.
