								 Hi David, thanks so much for joining us. I'm excited to hear the updates on PCBAA. So before we jump in, some of our listeners may have not heard the first podcast you and I did about the Printed Circuit Board Association of America. So why don't you give us a quick brief on who your organization is and what you're doing and then we're gonna talk about what you've been up to in DC.                               
								 Sure, thanks for having me, Judy. I really appreciate this and your long time support of the microelectronics industry. The Print and Circuit Board Association of America was started almost three years ago now by a core group of folks in the PCB and critical material supplier space, all of whom realizes that we needed a voice in Washington. And our mission is to educate, advocate, and legislate. We now have almost 35 members and the group is really focused on making sure. that the same kinds of incentives and the same kinds of public policies that have been enacted to support our semiconductor manufacturing here in the United States apply to the rest of the technology stack. Printed circuit boards, substrates, the critical materials that make those technologies possible.
