October 2016 Message

Dear Fellow Members,

This year is off to a great start: our Shrimp Boil Signature Membership Drive event will be on Friday 30 September 30. I would like to thank all of you who have already responded to the event. Also, I would like to en-courage our members to attend in order to socialize and network with people in the industry and make new connections. The event will be held on UNO’s campus at the Engineering Breezeway area starting at 6:00 p.m. See the map on p.4 of the newsletter
.
Please note that our October general membership meeting is cancelled. We will resume our normal general membership meeting schedule, which is the first Tuesday of every month, on 1 November.
I would like to thank the section Executive Committee for the hard work and determination put into the planning effort for this year’s events. Also, I would like to thank our members for your continuous support and participa-tion in the events offered by the New Orleans Section.

I also would like to thank our corporate sponsors for their continued support of the section. We have retained the support from most of last year’s sponsors and expect to add new sponsors for this year. All sponsors are featured in the monthly newsletter, so you can see their information on the Corporate Sponsor’s page—p.3.

We are actively seeking additional sponsors for the 2016–17 operating year, so please contact me if you are interested.

Please remember that ISA membership is not required for participation in section activities; however, I strongly encourage you to become a member and renew your So-ciety membership to take advantage of all its benefits like access to ISA publications. You also will be kept up to date on the latest trends and technologies related to the automation industry. You will gain access to ISA training programs and seminars. You will have networking opportunities at national and international levels. And, you will help support our Society in its efforts to advance and promote the automation industry.

You can become a member at the ISA web site. Click on this link https://www.isa.org/membership.

We are looking forward to another successful year. Please join us for our Membership Drive on 30 September at UNO!

Sincerely,
José Suarez, President
ISA New Orleans Section, Inc.
