ISA Will-DuPage – The Silver Anniversary is Upon Us

ISA Will-DuPage – The Silver Anniversary is Upon Us

We’ll be celebrating our 25th anniversary next year. To me this doesn’t just mean 25 years of our section being around. It represents a huge amount of work on the part of volunteer board members. Tabletop Shows and Golf Outings don’t just happen. There are many big tasks, and hundreds of small tasks that must be coordinated. It’s too much for even a few people, so we’ve got 16+ board members now, everyone pitches in.

They know that technicians, engineers, and business professionals are typically highly skilled, highly paid, and in great demand. They know that industrial technology, presently in use, requires high-tech skills. Further, they know that the foundation for these high-tech skills is available NOW!

Message from the President

During my 10 year affiliation with the ISA Will-DuPage Board of Directors, I’ve been fortunate enough to gain an understanding of the value this organization provides to our instrumentation and automation community.

However, it takes much more than this combination to have a successful section. It also takes a commitment from numerous individuals to pull our section together. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank those individuals […]
