CSIA meeting is May 11-14
The Control System Integrators Association’s annual meeting of its members will take place May 11-14 at the Marriott Bay Point Resort in Panama City, FL.
The conference brings together CSIA members from North America and around the world to network with their peers, share experiences, exchange ideas and solutions, and gain insights from the world’s leading automation suppliers about leading-edge techniques and technologies.
“Each of the last five years has seen attendance records set at our annual conferences,” CSIA Executive Director Norman O’Leary declared, “and judging by early interest, we expect another large turnout in Florida.
“As we have since our first conference in 1993,” he continued, “the program will be directed at top management of our system integrator-members, with content heavily focused on business %%MDASSML%% in support of our belief that being a good system integrator goes hand in hand with operating a good business.”
“The three-day meeting provides a unique forum for control system integrators of different sizes, specialties, and experience to meet under a common umbrella,” said CSIA executive council chairman Ray Bachelor, president, Bachelor Controls, Inc., Sabetha, KS. “The curriculum and camaraderie of our annual meeting make the gathering a‘must’ for our members.”
