San Diego Joint Chapters

The objective of the San Diego Joint Chapters is to provide a continuing forum for its members to improve the understanding of ceramic material, hybrid microelectronics, and microelectronic packaging and to encourage the exchange and dissemination of pertinent information.  The San Diego Joint Chapters organizes periodic meetings and symposia oriented toward topics of interest to its membership, in these and related technologies.  In addition to the technology exchange, the San Diego Joint Chapters provides its members the opportunity to network with former and potential future colleagues.  It allows its members to stay abreast of activities outside of their current organizations.
