Fellow ISA Houston Section members, don’t you just love Houston weather in the Fall? One day we are basking in sunlight with temperatures in the mid-seventies (°F) and the next day the temperatures have plunged into the mid-thirties and our skies are filled with rain! One thing you can say for cold weather though — it is perfect for some good hot chili! And speaking of chili, I hope you were able to attend this year’s Expo & Chili Cook Off, held on November 14th. I know many of you did because the turnout was fantastic!
The presentation will discuss different communications systems architecture and protocols and more specifically Foundation Fieldbus.
Implementation considerations for buses, networking and capabilities will be discussed.
The ISA Houston Section’s Lawrence M. “Dutch” Keen was presented with the Excellence in Enduring Service award at the ISA’s 51st Annual Honors & Awards Gala in Nashville, TN. This award recognizes dedicated volunteer service to the Society at the grassroots level. The inscription reads: “For dedicated and enduring service to the Society”.
This case study illustrates how an ISA section, the ISA Houston Section,
collaborated with ISA headquarters in Research Triangle Park, NC, USA,
to sponsor a comprehensive training event in its local area.
The origins of ISA Technical Training Camp—Houston 2013 grew out of
simultaneous, but initially independent movements within both the ISA
Houston Section and ISA headquarters, specifically ISA Education Services.
Fellow ISA Houston Section members, the month of November is upon us and the holidays are right around the corner. In this month of Thanksgiving I want to say that I am so appreciative of the many volunteers and corporate sponsors of our section. The ISA Houston Section is truly blessed!
We are organizing the CSE Study Group on Wednesday nights 6-8pm at BP Westlake Campus (near I-10 & HWY-6). We wish to extend our thanks to BP for giving us access to their facility for the study groups!
For their contributions to the Houston Section during 2012-2013.
Pentair has demonstrated the true qualities of leadership by sponsoring the facilities the section used for CSE Study groups for over 12 weeks, providing a safe, secure and focused environment for candidates to meet and prepare for the CSE Exam. Pentair continues to support ISA Houston Section with their support of committee chairs such as Mary Cannon, who presently serves as Student Section Chair and Scholarship Chair. Finally, Pentair continues to support the section in raising scholarship funds by sponsoring major events such as our spring golf tournament and fall chili cookoff. All these leadership activities, in their many forms, are the reason that the Houston Section honors Pentair with outstanding supporting company this year.
