Both the CPID (Color Projected Image Division) and EID (Electronic Imaging Division) were combined in September of 2012, to form a new division, the PID (Projected Image Division). In recognition of the contributions made by many PSA volunteers, we include here a list of previous chairs and other important contributions made in the individual divisions.
