Dec. 27, 2011: ISA Announces New Building Automation Systems Division

December 27, 2011
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — The International Society of Automation (ISA) has announced the formation of a new Building Automation Systems Division. The new technical division will launch January 2012.

ISA said the Building Automation Systems Division was organized for building automation professionals who design, build, install, troubleshoot, operate, and manage building automation systems, and who seek to adhere to best practices to ensure optimum system operation and performance. The division was formed to aid these professionals as they apply available standards and technology to building control systems.

Technical divisions are ISA membership groups that offer networking and educational activities to members around the world who work in the same industries or who have similar technical interests. Networking can be done via email discussions lists, in person at events, and via newsletters. Technical division members are encouraged to write, review, and present technical papers at ISA symposia and ISA Automation Week; and to publish technical papers. Division members also plan and conduct ISA’s annual symposia. ISA has 16 other Technical Divisions that are divided between two departments, the Automation and Technology Department and the Industries and Sciences Department.

ISA develops standards, certifies industry professionals, provides education and training, publishes books and technical articles, and hosts conferences and exhibitions for automation professionals. For more information, visit www.isa.org.
