This news article was printed in CONTROL's March 2009 edition.
Lynda J. Patterson, MS, CAE, was recently hired as the president of the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA).
Patterson, along with her team of professionals, is responsible for managing the business and administrative functions of CSIA including membership, meeting planning, finance, public relations and communications. The CSIA home office is now located in Madison, Wis.
Patterson not only brings 20+ years of experience and expertise to her new position, she is also a leader in her field. She is recognized by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) as a CAE (certified association executive), a certification held by only approximately 10% of association executives nationally. She is a CAE mentor and a member of the organization’s Executive Management Section Council.
“It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to work with CSIA professionals who hold themselves to the highest standards of business and project management practices,” says Patterson. “The members of this organization truly are committed to providing the best for their clients.”
CSIA mission is to provide its member system integrators with the means to improve their business and executive management skills in support of the belief that being a good system integrator goes hand-in-hand with operating a good business.
CSIA Executive Director Norm O’Leary said, “We developed criteria and standards and performed an in-depth search to find just the right person for this role. All of our final candidates were quite good, but Lynda Patterson was outstanding. She had the personality, communication skills, and confidence that we were searching for. She also has broad experience and expertise in this field that are accompanied by youthful, innovative ideas and exuberance that we believed were really essential to develop and grow our membership.”
