President's Message from Max Cortner

From the President...
Greetings and welcome to the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society.  Let me introduce you to the society.  It’s a worldwide group of professionals who share a vision to be “The premier international professional Society in the Instrumentation and Measurement (I&M) fields.”  Most of all, it is people.  People who conduct research in, educate others about and apply instrumentation and measurement to an amazing array of industries and services.  The list of officers in this website will introduce you to leaders in the Instrumentation and Measurement field who volunteer their time to further our mission as stated the Strategic Plan also on this website.  As President of the Society, I’m pleased and humbled to be surrounded by this wonderful group of people.  Get to know them, contact them with questions and suggestions, and ask them to help you get to know the rest of our society.

Our society provides value to you in many ways.  We provide the opportunity to publish your research in our top-rated Transactions in Instrumentation and Measurement.  We keep you up to date with hot topics through our Instrumentation and Measurement Magazine.  Check out our long list of Technical Committees made up of people interested in I&M as applied to communication, medicine, traffic safety, the environment, industrial inspection, and many other areas. Our conferences connect you to your colleagues across the globe to discuss a wide variety of application areas of Instrumentation and Measurement.  For personal learning, we offer video tutorials on a variety of I&M topics.  We can connect you to your local chapter and its members in your area.  Take a minute and review the rest of our website to pinpoint our offerings in your area of interest. 

If you are not a member, consider joining.  If you are already a member, please get involved to help us fulfill our mission to “Serve as the professional incubator for the growth of all members.”  The IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society is people reaching hands out to people like you.  

I look forward to meeting you in person at one of our events!

J. Max Cortner
President, IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society
