ESD ASSOCIATION North Central Chapter
The North Central Chapter is a professional voluntary association founded in 1987 by six people with a mission to promote networking and the exchange of technical information on common electrostatic discharge related subjects. From those first six members, the North Central Chapter membership has grown with membership throughout Minnesota, Western Wisconsin, Iowa, and North and South Dakota.

Today chapter members include Engineers, Technicians, Production Management, Quality Assurance and Reliability, Research, Sales and Marketing, Education, and Purchasing professionals. Our chapter members find the help and resources they need through educational programs, technical discussions, facility tours, and active networking during quarterly meetings. You may also learn more by reading the Chapter Bylaws.

North Central Chapter members,
Just a little reminder that we are hosting an excellent training program this September. SH&A Level 1 Plant Auditor training provides in depth training for Compliance Verification training. Upon successful completion of the test and exam, the attendee will receive certification from the ESDA for TR53 Compliance Verification.

After attending this course, the attendee will have a good understanding and comfort level on how to properly test, verify and troubleshoot ESD control items.

Please share the attached registration information with those in your company that would benefit from this training. Vendors: Please share this information with your customers.

We need to have sufficient registration to hold this class. This course will provide a great benefit to those that attend and a nice reward to our chapter for hosting the event. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Let’s make this training opportunity a great success. Thank you for your consideration!

Best Regards,

Craig Zander
NC Chapter Program Chair
