Director’s Message

I look forward to serving the Analysis Division as the new Director for 2019-2020. I want to give a huge thank you, to our now past director Paul Barnard. In his two years as Director his valuable contributions and service enabled the AD to retain the ISA Division Excellence Award. The pressure is on!!! Paul, will now carry on with our team as our technical program chair.

We are back in Galveston this year for the 64th Symposium. For those who have never attended it is much more than the technical papers and exhibited new technology, it is hands on training lead by the leading manufacturers, fundamentals of process analyzers, and advanced courses. I also feel, one of the more important draws from the 5 days of “Analytical Innovations & Solutions Return to the Sea” is the attendees that share knowledge and new and different applications during the social hours of this event. Monday, the technical pavilion floor will be open all day to enable engineers/techs and the students we have reached out to at the local colleges to have the opportunity to talk with different companies in our industry about their products.

We are always looking for volunteers to help us make your symposium better each year. The contributions of volunteering, writing and presenting papers, teaching a class, exhibiting equipment or registering and attending is what makes this event the best technical symposium in ISA. We would love to have you on our team no matter how much of your time you may be able to share.

You are all invited to the Sunday business meeting that is held just following the classes- join us and see what we do behind the scenes.
Looking ahead to 2020 we will be in Long Beach, California. More information to follow.

See you all soon

Cindy Cauthen
Director, ISA AD Division 2019-20
