APPLETON, Wis. — Werner Electric Supply’s product manager of process controls, Rodney Howard, was recently named the Education Chair of the Fox River Valley Chapter of the International Society of Automation (ISA).
In this role, Howard will be responsible for:
- Developing subject matter for monthly technical meetings, special conferences, and training courses
- Encouraging members to prepare papers, presentations, information sharing for ISA conferences, technical college visits, high school visits, and other process control technology-based events
- Alerting members to pertinent process control or instrumentation information
- Building and maintaining mutual understanding and cooperation with student sections and other organizations devoted to technical education and encouraging joint programs
“The thought of sharing the technical lessons and experiences I’ve gained to the next generation has always been a driver for me,” Howard said. “Many took the time to share the complex control strategies with me, and demystify the challenging aspects of process control engineering principles. It is now my turn to give back in the same generous fashion.”
The goal for Howard, in this role, is to shine a light on what a career in the process control industry looks like and invite others to share work experiences, solutions, and accomplishments, while creating compelling educational opportunities for the next generation.Tagged with Werner Electric Supply
