ANSI Opens Nominations for 2010 Leadership and Service Awards

Nominations are due by July 16, 5 p.m. EDT.

Published: Monday, April 26, 2010 - 12:36

(ANSI: New York) -- The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has announced the call for nominations for its 2010 Leadership and Service Awards. Presented in conjunction with World Standards Week, 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 ANSI’s board of directors, are considered eligible for an award. Recipients will be chosen from the list of nominees by an awards committee comprised of the officers of the ANSI board of directors.

This year ANSI introduces a new award to the lineup, now totaling 11 categories of individual awards. The Gerald H. Ritterbusch Conformity Assessment Medal honors distinguished service in promoting the understanding and application of conformity assessment methods as a means of providing confidence in standards compliance for the marketplace. The award is named for Gerald H. Ritterbusch, retired director of standards and regulations at Caterpillar and former chairman of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) technical committee (TC) 127 for earth-moving machinery.

“The annual awards program is a long-standing and valuable ANSI tradition,” says S. Joe Bhatia, ANSI president and CEO. “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.”

ANSI will honor the 2010 award recipients on Wednesday evening, Sept. 22, at a banquet and ceremony to be held at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, Virginia.

Nominations are due by Friday, July 16, 5 p.m. EDT.
