ISA Sarnia Section – President’s Message

-Mike Murray

Our ‘Membership Drive’ is still going on so if you know of anyone interested in being a member this would be an excellent time to sign them up. Membership is always a concern for ISA’s future and our Section’s future.

If you are looking to become more active in your Section come out to our executive meeting and take on an assistant role. Test the water it really is not that bad and the time required is in most cases minimal.

We are still looking for a training course that will be an interesting topic for many so if anyone has any ideas please let one of your executive know?

If you still do not have your copy of the ISA Sarnia Sections Reference Guide to the Measurement and Control Market 2018 you may get one from any of one of our executive or you can pick up additional copies from Kevin Noon at Emerson Process Management. Located in the valley and can be reached at 519-332-3132.

Items to focus on:

ISA is looking for any nominations for awards. I am sure that everyone has gotten their email. If you wish to nominate the Section or person please take the effort or speak with one of the executive.

The Lambton County Science Fair is to be held on April 13 & 14, 2018 at Lambton College. Kalpen will be the section champion on this event and will require volunteer judges.

We also have the District Leadership Conference coming up on April 27-28-29, 2018 to be held in Niagara Falls.

Our Section AGM will be on May 28th. We will be having the cruise one more time as it seems to be a very popular venue.

Our Section Golf tournament will be on June 01, 2018 at the Mooretown, St. Clair Parkway Golf Course.

Our key to our ISA success still as always is you our Section members. All with dedication, common interests and belief in our field of expertise are what it takes. Instrumentation is still what it is all about even though the word is in the background not the forefront as Automation has taken that position.

I will continue to repeat that if you have any topic ideas for speakers please forward to our program chair. He can use any assistance in providing an interesting, current and enjoyable speaker and topic to fill the dinner meetings, step up and let us know.

As always any comments or concerns please let your Executive know. Remember any unspoken ideas or concerns are wasted thoughts unless we inform and act on them.

Thank You.
