• Director's Message

    Well, as I write this the weekend before American Thanksgiving, and winter is just over four weeks away. Where has this year gone!

    In the last quarter, PUPID has lost 48 (including 37 members that are in active grace status) members and is down from 271 to 223 members; but we have had 12 new members.

    In this Fall "Logger" newsletter, I am pleased to include two presentations from the ABTCP 2017-50th Pulp & Paper International Congress & Exhibition this September 23 - 25 at the Transamerica Expo Center in Sao Paulo, Brasil ''The fourth industrial revolution ABTCP 2017'' by Ronaldo Neves Ribeiro of CENIBRA and ''Industria 4.0 - Conceitos e Aplicação a Indústrias de Processo'' by Luiz Egreja. You can see the presentations by clicking on the link on page.

    I just returned from the 4th Annual 2017 Process Control & Safety Symposium held at the Westchase Marriott in Houston.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me at Brad S. Carlberg, P.E., CSE or to discuss how you can help PUPID.

    I hope to encourage you to become more involved with the Division and to enroll more members.

    Do feel free to forward the Newsletter to your friends and colleagues who may have an interest in it.
