White smoke at ISA!

The current president of the International Society of Automation, Jim Keaveney, has announced the result of the elections for Society Leaders and Officers held during September. "I extend my sincere thanks to the candidates for their willingness to stand for election and hearty congratulations to those who have been elected to serve the Society. I want to personally thank each of you who took time to cast a ballot," he said.

As usual there is a good cross section of industries represented in those elected.  The election of a member of the Ireland Section, Brian Curtis, marks the second time that a European has been elected to the position of President-elect Secretary. This is the start of a three year term as he will assume the Presidency in 2018 and the office of Past President in 2019. 

The terms of office of all these positions start in January 2017.
