ABOUT THE MEETING:

Counterfeit parts frequently create the potential for product malfunction, leading to personal injury and even death — a situation that has created unnecessary danger for military and everyday consumers, plus immense new levels of liability and risk for manufacturers in a wide range of industries. The proliferation of counterfeit electronic parts into the manufacturing supply chain costs the U.S. government and its contractors billions of dollars per year.  But the problem is not just limited to those who supply government agencies. Recent reports show consumer and industrial businesses are losing approximately $250 billion each year because of counterfeit components.  Richard Smith, VP Business Development at ERAI, will present on this problem, its sources and trends, and means to detect and thwart.

The presentation for this meeting will be remotely delivered through a live WebEx link.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:

Founded in 1995, ERAI (www.erai.com) is a global information services organization that monitors, investigates, and reports issues affecting the global electronics supply chain. Richard Smith has been VP of Business Development at ERAI for 3 years.  For 35 years prior, he was an electronic component salesman, sales manager and international VP, and has opened and operated sales offices and distribution centers in Mexico, Malaysia, China and India.  He has visited customers and suppliers in 24 countries and more than 360 cities, and has sold components for distributors, brokers and manufacturer’s representatives.  During his career, he has been on just about every side of the counterfeit issue (except as violator), and is prepared to share his unique insights into what is proving to be a very significant and problematic issue for industries worldwide.  Currently residing in Naples, FL and married 33 yrs, he has 4 children, 6 grandchildren, and 2 Harleys.  He is a pretty serious jazz/classical guitar player, and collects pre-1960 mechanical watches.

IEEE-USA: H-1B Outsourcing Bill Will Not End Outsourcing

WASHINGTON (6 January 2017) — Reps. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Scott Peters (D-Calif.) have introduced legislation to combat outsourcing within the H-1B visa program. While the bill recognizes how destructive the H-1B program can be, it doesn’t do nearly enough to reign in outsourcing companies or protect American jobs.

“Hundreds of Americans lost their jobs to the H-1B program in Rep. Issa and Peters’ congressional districts,” IEEE-USA President Karen Pedersen said. “Yet their bill will allow thousands more jobs to be lost in the future.”

“It is simply unacceptable — at any wage rate — for companies to fire Americans and replace them with non-Americans who will never be allowed to become citizens.” (more…)
