Greetings Members of the Process Measurement and Control Division!

    The PMCD continues to grow in membership and in the number of symposia that we bring to you. This year sees us venturing onto yet another international venture as we start the planning process for the PCS Middle East to be held in Qatar. The PCS Houston continues to transform into one of the premier symposiums in its class, and the leading content and training providing symposium in ISA. 

    PMCD is committed to growing our partnerships with local sections. We partner with the ISA Houston Section for the PCS Houston, where we couple the event with the section’s Chili Cook Off and Expo. In a similar vein, PMCD plan to hold the 64th IIS in Canada with the Edmonton section. We are also exploring options to take the IIS to India in the year 2018. This laments our commitment to establishing ISA as a truly global organization, and a primary provider of knowledge, standards and professional growth in the automation world. 


    I also want to congratulate our scholarship awards winners for this year. This year, the winners were:

    ·         Jere Haney Honor scholarship to Aaron Christopher Pineda

    ·         Hugh Wilson Honor scholarship to Bonnie Sim

    ·         Scholarship to Zhengyu Zhao

    ·         Scholarship to Zubia Najam

    ·         Scholarship to Shama Tajani


    Finally, I encourage you to get involved with the division leadership, the benefits of getting involved are exponential. Feel free to reach out to me if you need more information about getting involved.
