The International Society of Automation (www.isa.org) is a nonprofit professional association that sets the standard for those who apply engineering and technology to improve the management, safety, and cybersecurity of modern automation and control systems used across industry and critical infrastructure. Founded in 1945, ISA develops widely used global standards; certifies industry professionals; provides education and training; publishes books and technical articles; hosts conferences and exhibits; and provides networking and career development programs for its 36,000 members and 350,000 customers around the world.
ISA owns Automation.com, a leading online publisher of automation-related content, and is the founding sponsor of The Automation Federation (www.automationfederation.org), an association of non-profit organizations serving as “The Voice of Automation.” Through a wholly owned subsidiary, ISA bridges the gap between standards and their implementation with the ISA Security Compliance Institute (www.isasecure.org) and the ISA Wireless Compliance Institute (www.isa100wci.org).

In my last article, I shared details about ISA's Summer Leaders Meeting (SLM), including our first Automation Advisory Council meeting and the strategic visioning and planning sessions that were held and next steps. In that meeting we discussed how ISA's use of the words "automation" and "automation professional" might make some members of ISA (and members of the automation community, including automation industry executives) feel as if ISA no longer focused on the needs of the control industry or its professionals. During this discussion, it was noted that "automation refers to delivery and control refers to function." We were also challenged to tell our story more - so that people understand what automation is and all the cool things automation professionals do. More...
