It is my pleasure to welcome Mitch Johnson as the newest member of the Flow Control Editorial Advisory Board. Mr. Johnson is the president of JMS Southeast, a manufacturer of thermocouples, RTDs, custom temperature sensors and thermowells based in Statesville, N.C. Mr. Johnson is a member of the ISA and serves on the ASTM E20 Committee, as well as the ASME 19.3TW, 19.3 and 40.9 committees, and advises the API 551 committee on temperature measurement issues. He is co-author of Practical Thermocouple Thermometry (2nd Ed., ISA) and served as Principal Investigator and co-author of Thermowell and Radiographic Testing Plug Design Recommendations and Typical Practices (EPRI 1023837).

As a member of our EAB, he will provide valuable expertise and guidance to our editorial team in the area of temperature measurement technology and applications.
