Share this on social media:

Four vision industry leaders have been elected to serve new two-year terms on the board of directors of AIA, the Association for Advancing Vision and Imaging.

The four board members who were elected are: David Dechow (pictured), principal vision systems architect at Integro Technologies; Edward Roney, national account manager for intelligent robotics, Fanuc America (re-elected); Ghislain Beaupré, vice president, R&D and operations at Teledyne Dalsa (re-elected); and Jeremy Bergh, president, North America, IDS Imaging Development Systems.

Dechow commented: ‘The AIA has played an important role in the continued growth of the machine vision and imaging industries and their technologies, and it is humbling to have this opportunity to work with the skilled industry professionals who contribute their time and experience in supporting this organisation and the industry as a whole as members of this board. The imaging market is entering a period of great growth, opportunity and challenge. I look forward to contributing to the continued success of the association in support of machine vision in automation.’

Roney added: ‘Technologies supporting growth [in automation] are evolving and merging and, in like response, so too should the Association for Advancing Automation.’

The other 2019 members of the AIA board of directors include: Wallace Latimer, vice president of US sales and marketing at Fisba, and chair of the AIA board; Steve Wardell, director of imaging, ATS Automation and vice chair of the AIA board; Dave Curley, vice president of sales and marketing at Pleora Technologies; Greg Hollows, vice president of the imaging business unit, Edmund Optics; James Gardiner, business development manager, Metaphase Technologies; John Merva, vice president of North America, Gardasoft Vision; Rusty Ponce de Leon, president, Phase 1 Technology; and Jeff Burnstein, president of the Association for Advancing Automation.
