“ANSI’s new membership approach is designed to provide members with maximum flexibility and value,” explained John Kalemkerian, ANSI vice president of membership, communications and education. Members can determine the level of access they desire through ‘a la carte’ options, choosing from an extensive collection of services and benefits. This provides maximum value for their dues investment, and allows each member to decide how and where to engage.”

ANSI’s mission is to enhance U.S. global competitiveness and the American quality of life by promoting, facilitating, and safeguarding the integrity of the voluntary standardization system. ANSI is the official U.S. representative to the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and, via the U.S. National Committee, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). ANSI currently has offices in New York City and Washington, DC.
