What the 2010 Young Professionals are saying:
"A huge opportunity to understand how the IEC works and operates."
"Everybody's voice is important, we had the opportunity to give our opinions."
A highlight was: "being treated as valuable sources of information, rather than just young people [there] to learn."
U.S. stakeholders are encouraged to nominate young professionals who work for industry, the government, academia, consumer organizations, or any entity within the U.S. voluntary standards and conformity assessment community. Candidates should be involved with standardization or conformance from a technical or managerial perspective within their organization. This program is targeted towards individuals who are in the early years of their professional career, post university.
The selection process is based on the nominee's demonstrated leadership and dedication , vision of the strategic or commercial impact of standards and conformance, and significant accomplishments in their chosen field of activity. Candidates will be assessed by a selection panel comprised of USNC Officers, standing committee officers, and a pool of USNC Honorary Life Members. The three winners will be notified in July 2011.
