ISA Hosts Summit
December 18, 2007

The International Society for Measurement and Control (ISA) recently organized and hosted a summit entitled Building and Preserving Association Relevancy into the Future in Research Triangle Park, NC. The summit was a unique inter-society benchmarking meeting for the engineering and scientific community. Senior leaders from more than a dozen organizations, representing more than 750,000 members, met to discuss common challenges, best practices, and future collaborations.

Common challenges faced by the societies included attracting and
retaining members under age 40 and in under-represented groups; becoming a global organization; achieving a fully integrated business; cultivating leaders from within the volunteer ranks; the future of individual membership organizations; and the future demand for engineers and scientists from industry and the government. Several organizations, including the Society of Women Engineers, the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the Project Management Institute, the American Industrial Hygiene Institute, and the Society of American Military Engineers, gave detailed presentations introducing each issue.
