Why I Nominate

By Ashley Weckwerth

I have been a leader at the section and division level and now serve on the Executive Board. In my time with ISA, I have met so many members and encountered Sections and Divisions that are doing AMAZING things! They host incredible events, lead others effortlessly, help others get into the automation profession, and grow ISA. Our Society is filled with passionate people and groups whose outstanding work deserves to be recognized. This is where WE have to step up and use the easy web portal to submit nominations for all those above-and-beyond members, sections and divisions. There are awards for people just beginning their ISA journey and for those who have loved and served in this Society for decades. And perhaps my favorite awards – those for outstanding sections and divisions! But seriously, none of this recognition can happen unless YOU point them out and say, “Look what they have done.” Don’t expect others to do it; YOU be the one to lift another person up. Submit the form. It does not take a lot of your time. Let’s Celebrate Excellence.
