We had a great turnout for last month’s meeting, and I thank everyone who attended. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 1 March 2016, and will be held at Don’s Seafood in Metairie again. Our guest speaker will be Mr. Mark Morse, Manager Information Software, from Rockwell Automation. Mark will be showing us the importance of asset performance systems with real world examples and the benefits manufacturers have achieved by using them.
New Orleans section’s Executive Committee is continuing to work hard to make the section the best section it can be! However, we can always use additional help from our members. If you feel the need to help the Society and New Orleans section, please contact me or any other committee member. Also, everyone is welcome to attend and encouraged to participate with us at monthly Executive Committee meetings. The meetings are held one hour prior to the general section meeting. ISA is your organization and it is as great as the people who support it. Also, if you have any feedback as to how we can improve the experience, please feel free to let us know.
Finally, I’m excited to announce that we are in the process of organizing an 8-hour educational seminar on the hot topic of “Cyber Security.” The event will be held in late April 2016. The seminar will focus on identifying potential threats and the different types of remediation techniques that can be used from the control layer and throughout the enterprise layer of an organization. We will be releasing additional information along with a formal invitation in the near future. Please be on the lookout for it!
I hope everyone has a great day and I’m looking forward to seeing you at a meeting or event soon!
Brad Vicknair, President
