North America Advisory Board

Mission Statement and Scope of the SEMI North American Advisory Board (NAAB)

The SEMI North American Advisory Board will represent the interests of the SEMI membership in North America to the SEMI International Board of Directors.

Mission

Strengthen the financial, market, and technology performance of SEMI member companies operating in North America through programs, influence on the device community, and impact on public policy.  Implement regional initiatives, products and services, focused on active promotion of membership needs, including lobbying, education, and market statistics.
 
Scope

The SEMI North American Advisory Board is composed of SEMI Members who manufacture products or services in the region or represent constituencies that are critical to the implementation of the Mission.  Its purpose is to facilitate for the SEMI membership in North America collective efforts that can be more effectively or efficiently undertaken as an industry association than as individual companies.  The Board defines policy and direction for region specific issues as delegated by the SEMI International Board.
