Atlanta – ECIA is pleased to announce that longtime association member Mark Conley, of O’Donnell Associates North, has accepted the position of 2020 Executive Conference Chair. Mark Conley has been with O’Donnell Associates North since 1979 and has been an active member of the ECIA since its beginning.
O’Donnell Associates North is a manufacturers’ rep firm serving the critical Northern California territory, including Silicon Valley, The North Coast, The Central Valley, Reno/Carson City and Hawaii.
“I’m thrilled that Mark has accepted our invitation to chair the 2020 Conference,” said Debbie Conyers, ECIA VP of Member Engagement. “He is very active in ECIA and will bring a unique perspective to the conference planning. As the electronic components industry – and our Association – continue to grow and evolve to address rapidly changing business conditions, our strength is the fact that we serve the entire channel, the component manufacturers, their distributors and independent sales reps. Mark brings a seasoned eye, a can-do attitude and a sense of fun to the planning process!”
“ECIA is an even stronger, more effective organization with the recent changes to the Council structure,” continued Conley. “I look forward to working with Debbie and the conference committee to deliver an interesting and forward-thinking conference to support executive strategic planning. The conference always delivers on its promises, but I pledge to make 2020 the best one yet!”
