The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) honored leaders of the U.S. and global voluntary standards-setting and conformity assessment community recently at the 2012 ANSI Awards Banquet and Ceremony. Held annually, the leadership and service awards program is a long-standing tradition that recognizes and honors creativity, dedication, and vision in the field of standards and conformity assessment.
Held at the Newseum Knight Conference Center in Washington, DC, the awards dinner was one of many ANSI-sponsored events held in conjunction with the celebration of World Standards Week 2012.
NFPA's own Robert Vondrasek, vice president (retired) of technical projects, was one of six individuals who received the Meritorious Service Award in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the U.S. voluntary standardization system. Each has demonstrated outstanding service in enabling ANSI to attain the objectives for which it was founded.
Congratulations to Robert and the rest of this year's honorees!
