The Measurement, Control & Automation Association (MCAA) has appointed Teresa Sebring as president of the association, effective Aug. 1. 

Sebring succeeds Cynthia Esher, who has retired from the post but will continue to be involved with MCAA in an advisory capacity as executive consultant to the president.

Sebring joined MCAA in 1997 as administrative assistant to the president. Since 2012, she has served as vice president and has been responsible for MCAA operations including communications, data programs and staff oversight, marketing and meeting/event planning. She also contributes to membership development, retention and strategic planning.

Even with the change in leadership, Sebring stressed that the MCAA support system is still in place. “We have a great team and are lucky to have Cynthia Esher’s wealth of experience and institutional knowledge as a resource in the years to come," Sebring said.
