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).

The Division Communications Award may be conferred to a division in both the Automation & Technology and Industries & Sciences Departments of ISA. The award recognizes the efforts of the division that best communicates on a regular basis with its membership.
The Division Communications Award is a plaque that is displayed at the Society's International Headquarters in Research Triangle Park, NC. Each year, the winning division name is added to the plaque. A certificate will be presented to the Director, Newsletter Editor, and any other members of the division who contributed significantly to the division's communications effort. The Director and the Newsletter Editor of the two runners-up divisions will receive "Honorable Mention" certificates. The presentation will be at the Joint Automation & Technology and Industries & Sciences Departments Awards Luncheon at the Society's annual Fall event
The Division Communications Award was originated to stimulate the improvement in division communications and to encourage communication of division activities, plans and achievements.
The award will be administered by the individual department honors and awards review committee. The committee will consist of the Department Vice President, Advisory Board Chairman, and the Department Honors and Awards Chairman. The Department Vice President will select one alternate if two members of the awards committee are members of the same division.
The following categories will serve as a basis for judging and determining the winner of the Communications Award. Each category contains a series of questions or guidelines. Each category has an assigned value based on its importance.
In order to be eligible for the award, all materials must be received by the respective departmental awards committee prior to or on the established due date identified in the cover letter accompanying the awards criteria. Eligible materials include any form of communications produced and distributed to members since the previous year President's Summer Meeting.
