    The 55th Annual ISA Honors and Awards Gala was held on 29 October 2017 at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, Tampa Bay, Florida, USA.

    The Honors and Awards program provided an opportunity for ISA to recognize outstanding individuals for the contributions they made to the Society and/or the automation industry. In addition to the Celebrating Excellence honorees, Senior ISA Members were elevated to the distinguished grade of ISA Fellow. The grade of ISA Fellow is granted in recognition of outstanding achievements in scientific or engineering fields as recognized by their ISA peers.

    Adding drama to this year's awards presentations, the recipients of the Division Excellence Award and the Section Excellence Award were revealed at the Gala. The top three nominees for each category were acknowledged for their significant achievements. The Division Excellence Award went to the Food and Pharmaceutical Industries Division and the Section Excellence Award went to the Ireland Section.
