    January 2016 Director’s Message from Ruth Sikorski
    Hello, my name is Ruth Sikorski and it will be my pleasure to work with all of you over the next two years as the Director of the Aerospace Industries Division of ISA. I would like to take a moment to thank outgoing Aerospace Industries Division Director, Bryan Hayes (2014-2015) for his outstanding work, leadership, and strong contributions to our division.  Although he is the past Division Director, Bryan will still serve in many capacities for ISA, including the 62nd International Instrumentation Symposium (IIS) as a subject matter expert.
    The Aerospace Industries Division is a technical interest group that serves professionals involved with ground testing, flight testing, control of airplanes, missiles, and space vehicles, and their related measurements. Aerospace Industries along with Test Measurements and Process Measurement and Control will be the sponsoring divisions for the 62nd IIS, which will be held during May 24-26, 2016 in Dayton, Ohio, and will mark the third time that ISA has collaborated with the Society for Machinery Failure Prevention Technology (MFPT). The technical content of the 62nd IIS should be top notch with paper sessions involving instrumentation, turbine test technology, data systems, process measurement and control, student papers, and many more technical sessions. Please go to the 62nd IIS link on this page to register and/or submit an abstract, and make plans to attend to gain knowledge in different technical sessions and to network with your fellow professionals!
    If you are interested in volunteering or becoming a presenter, reviewer, or published author for the 62nd IIS, please contact me at the information shown below.  I look forward to seeing you there!
