A message from our CEO

Hello SEMI members,

Ajit formal photo Square 500px

First and foremost, I hope this finds you all healthy and safe. With new developments emerging every day on the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, we want to make sure you’re aware of the resources that SEMI is making available to your business, and many others in the electronics manufacturing and design supply chain, to help you navigate through these tumultuous times.

Our SEMI Responds webpage lists best practices for company policies, communications and working from home, based on recent calls with members led by our Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) and Information Technology Leadership (ITL) groups. The EHS section provides tips on facilities and meetings, employee policies, business travel and communications, while the ITL section lists insights on computing hardware for staff, licensing, networks, security and employee policies. SEMI greatly appreciates the invaluable member input. Our goal is to help our member companies make informed business decisions during these highly challenging and uncertain conditions, and your contributions to this effort will benefit the industry as a whole. 

As for SEMI events, I want to reassure you that SEMI continues to make the safety of our members, exhibitors, visitors and employees our top priority. We continue to track COVID-19 developments worldwide and advisories from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are also working with our regional offices to engage with industry contacts for inputs, and SEMI has postponed or cancelled several of our major events. If plans for any other upcoming events change, SEMI will immediately notify event exhibitors, visitors and speakers. You can find the latest information on changes to our event schedule on our Coronavirus Status Updates webpage. 

The team at SEMI is proud to serve you all and is absolutely committed to doing all that we can to help the industry rise to meet this newest challenge. 

Sincerely yours,

Ajit Manocha
President and CEO, SEMI
