Organizational Member Forum

The ANSI Organizational Member Forum (OMF) provides a forum for U.S. professional societies, trade associations, standards developers and academia to come together to discuss national and international standards and conformity assessment issues of interest.


As a membership Forum of ANSI, the functions of the ANSI Organizational Member Forum include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Provide a forum for discussion and networking by a defined interest category;
  • Provide a mechanism for "early warning" of relevant trends;
  • Address issues of interest primarily to their membership and galvanize implementation at their constituent level;
  • Identify broader-based issues to be addressed by an identified governance body;
  • Assume an active role in ANSI membership recruitment and retention; and
  • Serve as the one place within ANSI where participants can represent their own organization's interests.
