ISA Sarnia Section – President’s Message

Greetings Friends,

- Kalpen Vachharajani -

– Kalpen Vachharajani –

Welcome to Spring!!  Really??  Where was the winter this year?? Almost all the weather people announced last fall that, “It’ll be winter in Canada, just as we always dreamed it would be”.   At least all of us in SW Ontario miss “that winter”.  As it goes with everything, some people will complain and some will be happy!!

Same situation in Sarnia section (and at ISA internationally), some are very concerned about falling membership and some are taking it as an effect of internet. What do you think? I would like hear from you as to, what is keeping you as an ISA member. What membership benefits you value? Sarnia section executives have spent considerable amount of time talking about membership and how to increase that in last couple of meetings.

We value your opinion and will appreciate if you can share your ideas about…

  • what membership benefit(s) you value the most?
  • how to keep existing members active?
  • what can we do to attract new members?

Send me your reply to my email listed below.

On Tuesday – April 4, 2017, Sarnia section will host a Table Top show at Holiday Inn Sarnia. With product displays from over 75 vendors. The show committee has also planned interesting technical seminars. Visit for details. If you are a vendor with interest in selling your products in SW Ontario region, reserve your booth if you have not, to avoid last minute disappointment. To rest of my friends, please mark the date on your calendar and do take some time out to visit SW Ontario’s Premier Instrumentation & Controls event.

If you want to receive our section updates via regular emails then please contact our Web & Electronic Communication Chair, Christy Alexander at and she will be more than happy to add you on our list.

Cheers everyone!
