NEMI goes global, changes name.
"As a member-driven organization, we evolve to meet the demands of the changing industry landscape, which means our focus is becoming more global," said Jim McElroy, executive director and CEO. "[W]e have chosen a new name that retains some of our hard-earned brand recognition while signaling our move to a broader geographic scope."
McElroy said the iNEMI board has consistently guided the consortium toward a more global perspective. The organization opened its membership to all North American companies in 1996 and in 2004 actively recruited international participation in several activities.
Furthermore, the 2004 iNEMI technology roadmap marked the first time the group actively recruited participation from Asia and Europe. The consortium has also revised its bylaws and meeting structure to incorporate companies in Asia and Europe.
