Start the conversation during Worlds Standards Week (WSW) on social media: If you're planning to attend the numerous on-site events and sessions in Washington, D.C., or even if you can't make it this year, you can follow updates from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) by reading the latest headlines and following hashtag #WSWeek on Twitter.
Find out what attendees and their related organizations are saying about standardization, and network with government leaders, corporate and industry professionals, and key representatives of standards and conformity assessment bodies. You can also share your organization's news and updates related to standardization and the week-long event by connecting with ANSI's twitter handle @ansidotorg.
World Standards Week highlights the latest priorities and broad-reaching activities related to standardization through daily events and discussions with industry, government, academia, and more. The spectrum of events varies: For example, young emerging professionals can learn about the process of creating voluntary consensus standards through a free Standards Simulation Event on Wednesday, September 30. And all interested stakeholders are encouraged to attend the free ANSI Conference: Standards and the Service Economy, which will bring leaders from international standards bodies and service providers together to discuss how domestic and international standardization can meet the diverse needs of the service sector.
