Young U.S. Electrotechnology Professionals Sought For Prominent International Standardization Program

Program aims to strengthen the future of technology transfer and encourage the participation of young professionals in shaping the future of standardization and conformance

NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. National Committee (USNC) of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is seeking nominations for young professionals at the start of their electrotechnology careers to participate in the Young Professionals 2013 Workshop, to be held in conjunction with the 77 th IEC General Meeting (GM) in New Delhi, India, on October 21-25, 2013.

The Young Professionals Workshop brings together international candidates selected from IEC National Committees around the globe who are at the start of their careers in electrotechnical standardization and conformity assessment. The program aims to cultivate long-term national involvement in the international arena, strengthen the future of technology transfer, and encourage the participation of young professionals in shaping the future of standardization and conformance.

The 2012 Young Professionals from the United States were:

  • Aisha Bajwa Field Applications Engineer Alcan Cable/Division of Alcan Products Corp.
  • Kevin S. Duncan Senior Staff Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) EngineerSeagate Technology/ESD Association
  • Manyphay SouvannarathSenior Systems Engineer   General Electric

Ms. Souvannarath was one of only three international participants voted to be a 2012 Young Professional (YP) Leader at the 76 th IEC GM in Oslo, Norway. As such, she will act as ambassador for the program within the IEC family and help to shape its activities while she serves as YP Leader.

Alongside recipients from other nations, the three young professionals selected to represent the U.S. at the IEC 2013 General Meeting in New Delhi will attend a dedicated workshop where they will learn more about the IEC, standardization strategies, and conformity assessment. They will also have the opportunity to attend technical meetings where standards are developed, observe meetings of the IEC Standardization Management Board (SMB) and the IEC Conformity Assessment Board (CAB), and benefit from extensive networking opportunities in an international setting. Recipients will be financially supported for their travel and up to three nights of accommodation.

"Being able to sit in at the SMB and CAB meetings and also getting to sit in at the Technical Committee level was a great insight. This provided a holistic view from the technical side all the way through to the management side of standards, and that was a good opportunity," said Ms. Souvannarath.
