Welcome to the Houston Section page.

Dear ISA Houston Section Members, 

It is with great honor and enthusiasm that I write to you today as the newly elected President of the International Society of Automation, Houston Section, for the 2024-2025 term. My journey with ISA began a few years ago, driven by a quest for knowledge in functional safety and fire and gas. Little did I know that this search would lead me to an extraordinary community of like-minded professionals dedicated not only to expanding their expertise but also to fostering meaningful connections and making a positive impact in our industry and beyond.

Having served in the leadership program roles within our Houston section – starting as Secretary, then Treasurer, and subsequently as Vice President – I have had the privilege of witnessing firsthand the remarkable contributions of our members and the collective achievements we have accomplished together. I am profoundly grateful for the support of our dedicated team and consider myself fortunate to have the opportunity to lead and learn from such talented individuals.

Reflecting on our achievements, I am proud to highlight the impactful programs and events that define our section. From our educational initiatives and technical program meetings to our signature events, each contributes significantly to our community's growth and development. Moreover, our Scholarship Program and support for young professionals underscore our commitment to nurturing the next generation of automation leaders.

As we embark on this new term, I would like to remind and reinforce ISA Corporate core values:

  • Vision: Create a better world through automation.
  • Mission: Empower the global automation community through standards and knowledge sharing.
  • Values: Excellence, Diversity and Inclusion, Professionalism, Integrity, and Collaboration.

And the ISA Corporate Strategic Objectives of Outreach, Awareness and Advocacy, and Innovation Insights. With the foundational Objectives of a Vibrant Community and Financial Stability.

Looking forward to the next term, I am excited to share my key goals for the ISA Houston Section, aligned with ISA's core values and strategic objectives:

1.     Expansion of Education Programs: We aim to consolidate our renowned PE Study Group and enhance our educational offerings to meet the evolving needs of our members. And in collaboration with ISA corporate programs, we seek to introduce additional local initiatives.

2.     Support for ISA Houston Section Signature Events: We will work diligently to ensure the success of our signature events—such as the Cajun Cook Off and Expo, Golf Tournament, and Chili Cook Off and Expo—while exploring opportunities for new networking and sponsorship events to further enrich our community.

3.     Promotion and Expansion of the Scholarship Program: With a focus on inclusivity and support for future leaders, we will promote and expand our Scholarship Program to increase participation and impact.

4.     Leadership Development: We are committed to nurturing leadership within our section by actively seeking new volunteers, providing training opportunities for current board members and committee chairs, and empowering individuals to contribute effectively to our community's growth.

As we strive to achieve these goals together, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to each of you for your continued dedication and commitment to ISA Houston Section. To stay updated and connected, I invite you to visit our ISA Connect page regularly. Additionally, you are welcome to join our monthly board meetings to contribute your ideas and feedback directly. And please feel free to reach out to me via LinkedIn or email at president@houstonisa.org.

Best Regards,

Matheus Bertazolli

    Dear Jim,

    On behalf of the entire International Society of Automation (ISA) community, I want to extend my condolences
    regarding the recent tornados and devastation in the greater Houston area.

    We are hopeful that you and our other Houston Section colleagues are safe and sound, and that power is restored quickly to those who remain without it. Please know that the victims are in our thoughts.

    If there is any way that ISA can support you or your community, please do not hesitate to let us know

    We are grateful, as ever, for your support and partnership, and we are so glad that our Houston community members are active leaders in automation.

    Thank you for everything you do.

    Claire Fallon
    CEO and Executive Director
