Marty For ISA HQ Pres!
June 09, 2021
August 19, 2021 Blog Update: We did it! The ISA Calgary Section is delighted to announce that ISA Calgary Section Member, Marty Bince, has been elected as the 2023 ISA HQ President.
"On behalf of our board and members, I'd like to congratulate Marty Bince. Marty is a great friend (also my ski 'wife' and golf partner) and a consummate professional. Thank you to everyone that made the effort to vote." - Mark Tarrant, 2021/2022 ISA Calgary Section President
For 2023, let's help Marty Bince become the first - Canadian - ISA HQ President in over 30 years!
The future is getting brighter as ISA emerges from the pandemic... and at the global level, the International Society of Automation needs a leader that's ready to use this to our advantage.
Think: a visionary, someone that knows the organization inside and out, someone that's been involved in the organization's USA, Canadian and international work, someone that's willing to take some risks in order to create change, and someone that knows the power of delegating and bringing in fresh talent to help get the job done... meet Marty Bince.
