The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) would like to remind all members and other interested stakeholders that only one month remains to submit nominations for the 2013 ANSI Leadership and Service Awards, which have an official deadline of Friday, June 28, 2013.
Presented in conjunction with World Standards Week 2013, 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.
Representatives of industry, government, academia, consumer organizations, and the U.S. voluntary consensus standards and conformity assessment community, with the exception of current officers of the Institute's Board of Directors, are considered eligible for an award. Recipients will be chosen from the list of nominees by an awards committee made up of the officers of the ANSI Board of Directors.

"We welcome this opportunity each year to recognize the tremendous contributions that individuals with diverse backgrounds and perspectives make to standards and conformity assessment issues that affect both the economy and our well-being."
