             Harriet Radvansky, ISA Cleveland Section president, 2017-2018

In 1957, my father took me to the Instrument Society of America’s national show being held for the second time in Cleveland. I was eleven years old. When he bought his partner’s half of their manufacturers’ representative business in 1962, my mother returned to full time employment. After working together during the day they continued to discuss business at the dining room table while seven family members ate together. You could correctly state that I was taught the value of active ISA membership by my parents.When I joined the family business in 1981 I began to regularly attend local meetings. Soon I was traveling to regional and international symposiums and conferences in the United States and Canada representing my company and the Cleveland Section.Our society has been growing phenomenally around the globe. To reflect this outreach, it has changed its name to The International Society of Automation. The focus remains the same: providing opportunities to members and students for educational and personal growth in our industries.
The planning committee has tours
scheduled that should be popular and talks about smart grids, constant monitoring of emissions, IIOT and a very hot topic: drones.As we start the new program year I hope you will attend our local monthly meetings, sign up for a webinar, attend a Division symposium, buy a book or attend a training session to add to your expertise on the job and most of all, enjoy the friendships and networking ISA offers. Our Cleveland Section officers and chairs have many talents to share. I am still learning from them and find my membership most worthy of my time. I hope you agree.  Please check our website regularly so that you can take advantage of our local events.
