Nordson ASYMTEK announced that Steven J. Adamson, marketing specialist, has received International Microelectronics and Packaging Society’s (IMAPS) 2010 President’s Award. The award is given for dedicated efforts in ensuring a successful reorganization of the IMAPS Microelectronics Foundation and increasing its financial resources.

Adamson has been an active member of the organization for many years. He was chairman of the San Diego IMAPS chapter for two years and general chairman of the 2006 IMAPS International Symposium on Microelectronics. In addition, he served as IMAPS president in 2008.

“Steve has a passion for the society, for the success of the society and for the proliferation of the society (IMAPS),” said Howard Imhof, Advanced Coatings Division manager, Metalor Technologies USA, and 2010 IMAPS president. “Following a recently completed three-year sequential term as president elect, president, and first past president-each with separate but significant responsibilities to a 4,000+ international membership-Steve volunteered to chair the IMAPS Educational Foundation in 2010, which raises and distributes funds for university/college students to pursue microelectronic packaging and interconnect education and careers.”

“It is an honor and a surprise to receive this award, especially because I initiated the President’s Award when I was IMAPS president,” said Adamson. “I am pleased to continue working for the IMAPS Foundation; it is a vital part of IMAPS, as it gives students financial aid to attend industry seminars and events, meet and share ideas with others in the industry, and introduces them to IMAPS and the technical resources IMAPS can provide to them. It is an investment in the future of the microelectronics packaging industry.”
