The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) announced today the recipients of its 2016 Leadership and Service Awards. Recipients have been recognized for their significant contributions to national and international standardization activities, as well as an ongoing commitment to their industry, their nation, and the enhancement of the global voluntary consensus standards system. ANSI will honor these 18 distinguished award recipients during an October 26 ceremony held in conjunction with World Standards Week 2016 in Washington DC.
James Pauley, our very own president and CEO received the George S. Wham Leadership Medal, which honors an individual who has made outstanding contributions to the voluntary standardization community and provided long-term direction and visionary qualities in support of the ANSI Federation. We here at NFPA appreciate the honor bestowed onto Jim; thank you ANSI!
