We are asking all our members from ISO17025 accredited laboratories to come and bring your own ‘best practices’ to share. 


The success of this event depends on your contributions.  We expect you will hear some useful hints, and desire a follow-up session.  This will only be possible if you contribute, as well as "listen".


The Southeastern Michigan IEEE EMC Society chapter urges you to inform Scott Lytle that you will be presenting a hint, or Best Practice that you have developed in your work. 

  • Your hints could be verbal only, or
  • a short presentation, with 1 or more slides.

Once we have enough presentations we will put together a representative ‘agenda’. 


This opportunity is especially useful for those of you who seldom speak publically. 

A short 2-5 minute presentation is a stress-free way to get your "presentation" feet wet.


Of course, longer presentations are acceptable as well.
