Dear ISA Bangalore members and fellow automation professionals:
We are coming to the end of this Executive Committee’s term and the new team will be established during the AGM on 29 June 2019. I would like to thank all the teammates, colleagues for their wholehearted support during the year to ensure smooth and very successful organization of the activities.

This year we focused on technology deep dive and had many sessions on getting into the depth of technology. Our techTalks were focused on getting into the details of the components of IIOT. We conducted 2 successful techTrainings on Cyber Security and Functional Safety. We had a week of modeling festival on Digital Twins with the active participation of IISc, BMSCE, and ASIET. Our members have been extremely active on initiatives for the Student Sections, with our flagship event iACT at ASIET, Kochi attracting a large gathering of automation students. As a last activity of the year, we have organized 1-Day workshop at IISc on Process Safety and Standards.

A first -time initiative of this term was the Leadership Development conference was organised at an off-site location, Kochi, to guide and motivate the EC team , especially the younger volunteers.

In the end, I would like to once again thank my friends for the support for the ISAB activities and wishing the new team a very successful 2019-2020.

Special thanks to the ISAB- Konnekt team for ensuring timely release of our Newsletters.

Logging off with fond memories… Sunil, President ISA Bangalore Section, 2018-2019.
