Reminder: Call for Nominations for 2007 Leadership and Service Awards Ends July 16


New York, Jun 04, 2007

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) wishes to remind all interested parties that the Call for Nominations for the 2007 Leadership and Service Awards ends July 16. Presented in conjunction with the U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day, the awards recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to voluntary consensus standardization and conformity assessment programs, and have consistently demonstrated a commitment to their industry, their nation, and the enhancement of the global standards system.

This year’s Call for Nominations seeks individuals who have dedicated themselves to efforts that will strengthen American competitiveness in the global marketplace and improve the quality of life for workers and consumers around the world. According to ANSI president and CEO S. Joe Bhatia, the ANSI annual awards program “is a long-standing tradition that honors the best in the field, recognizing outstanding achievements across the broad spectrum of ANSI members and the stakeholders that comprise our nation’s standardization and conformity assessment community.”

A new award is being introduced to the program this year: the Elihu Thomson Electrotechnology Medal. The award honors an individual who has contributed in an exceptional, dedicated way to the field of electrotechnology standardization, conformity assessment and related activities both at the national and international levels.

ANSI will honor the 2007 award recipients on Wednesday evening, October 17, at a banquet and ceremony to be held at The Fairmont Washington in Washington, DC.
