Happy’s Play-by-Play of IPC APEX EXPO


Reading time ( words)

This was the first time IPC had a virtual APEX EXPO. It went well, but I missed seeing everyone. On the other hand, all this material being available for 90 days certainly allows it to fit anyone’s schedule. I spent all week intently listening to the presentations.

But this is still really good news; the politicians are on the record now, and we can hold them accountable.
