Individual membership in ISA delivers 24/7 access to the most relevant automation technical content in the world, and connects you with the best and brightest minds in your industry. Our members join ISA to increase their technical knowledge; develop their skills; and share experiences, successes, and lessons learned.

"Different people join and benefit from ISA membership for many different reasons. Whether you simply wish to learn from others, teach others, participate in standards, or serve in leadership roles, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I wouldn’t be who I am, known as I am, doing what I am, and have as many career opportunities as I have, if it weren’t for my involvement in ISA. I owe my career to ISA."
-- Paul Gruhn, P.E., ISA Fellow
