ISA Members are encouraged to professionally involve themselves with public issues associated with automation. This can be done as qualified speakers and authors in ISA meetings and publications based on the Society’s normal system of invitation and peer review. Volunteers may also participate as members of existing Society committees or by organizing committees within the structure of ISA.
 
It is the policy of ISA to provide equal opportunities for participation by volunteers without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, marital or veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected status.
 
It shall be the goal of the Society to ensure that ISA can benefit from a diverse leadership team, representing all aspects of our membership and our profession. Recognizing ISA is an international society, leadership opportunities should be provided, without bias, to qualified members from all geographic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. In addition, leaders are sought from all facets of the automation industry, including engineering, design, education, research, technical sales and manufacturing, to name a few.
 
In accordance with the above, the Society’s objective is to fill each volunteer position with the most qualified and available person. The skill, experience, and personal ability of every nominee or candidate for each volunteer position will be carefully evaluated.
