Speaker: Peter Taylor  -   BHD Instrumentation (Ontario) Limited
  Peter has over 25 years experience in providing hands on training and support to the process, chemical and electronics industry. Peter's addiction to gadgets extends beyond the workplace to his three favourite hobbies, amateur radio and digital photography and repairing home computers. Some folks pity him for working all day with gadgets, then coming home only to work with more gadgets. His wife says “at least I know where he is at night” and his two grown kids have been bitten by the gadget bug too. They just keep encouraging the old man so that they will get first dibs on his hand-me-downs.


President's Message

Dear Members, Colleagues and Friends,

President's MessageAnother year has come and gone,  and once again I'm amazed at how "time flies when you're having fun". Trusting you've had a most enjoyable holiday season and on behalf of the entire ISA Hamilton Section Executive Board..  Best Wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year !!

We're now into the second half our 2007/2008 season at ISA Hamilton and I must say...  I'm really looking forward to the terrific meetings and events that we have lined up for the next few months.  Just around the corner is our January membership meeting which promises to be not only informative,  but also very interesting and enjoyable.  For those of you who've heard Peter Taylor before,  you already know this...   I'm sure you'll enjoy his presentation on the Advances in Level Measurement Technology.

ISA Hamilton EXPO 2008 is once again shaping up to be our best ever.  It seems that every year it just gets bigger, better, and even better.  Alice Kelly continues to spearhead this effort and as always,   she's doing an excellent job in coordinating the requirements and all those details.  In addition,  I also want to formally recognize Glen Taylor for his excellent help in getting the Technical sessions organized. 

I'm looking forward to seeing you at our upcoming meetings and events.

Best regards,
  Jack Vincent
  President - ISA Hamilton Section
