What is the ISA and what does the acronym stand for?

The ISA was founded in 1945 as the Instrument Society of America. In the 90's the name evolved to the Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society to encompass a focus beyond instruments alone. Finally, as the organization has gone global, a name change was adopted in 2008, and the ISA is now known as the International Society of Automation.

The Society is a global nonprofit organization that is setting the standard for automation by helping over 30,000 worldwide members and other professionals solve difficult technical problems, while enhancing their leadership and personal career capabilities. Based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, ISA develops standards; certifies industry professionals; provides education and training; publishes books and technical articles; and hosts the largest conference and exhibition for automation professionals in the Western Hemisphere.

The Central AZ Section of the ISA (CENAZ) mission is to locally support of our Arizona membership in parallel with ISA national.
