Today marks the 246th Independence Day of the United States of America. Also known as the Fourth of July, this day commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress, as well as the declaration by the Congress that the American colonies are free and independent states. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.
Interesting note: Benjamin Franklin, George Clymer, Robert Morris, George Read, James Wilson, and Roger Sherman were the only founders to sign both the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the Constitution of the United States in 1787.

I spent some time with my friend and former colleague Renee Michalkiewicz, vice president and general manager at NTS Baltimore, formerly Trace Laboratories. I was interested in Renee’s views on IPC and the Technical Activities Executive Council, of which she is currently the chairman, a position I held some years ago.
