Open Quarterly Meetings

Who do you turn to when you want ideas on ways to improve your business operations? Where do you go to find information on the best way to solve a problem nagging your design or production departments? How do you reach out to your industry peers to find out what’s happening today in the marketplace that will affect your bottom line tomorrow?

One of the most effective ways to answer all of these questions is to attend an SBCA Open Quarterly Meeting (OQM). The goal of each OQM is to bring component manufacturers (CMs) and suppliers together to discuss the latest issues facing the components industry. Besides BCMC, OQMs are one of the most valuable investments CMs can make both from the perspective of return on that investment and industry-specific best practice development. Given their focus on open dialogue and social interaction, the relationship building opportunities at each OQM are unparalleled.

If you are unable to travel to every OQM, please note that meetings are often available via SBC Connection, which lets participants take part in meetings over the Internet without leaving their office or home. Contact staff for more information about this option.
