The U.S. National Committee (USNC) of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is currently seeking nominations for participants in the first ever Young Professionals 2010 Workshop, to be held in conjunction with the IEC 2010 General Meeting in Seattle. The workshop will bring together professionals from around the world who are at the start of their careers in electrotechnical standardization and conformance.

To be held on October 13-15, 2010, the IEC Young Professionals Workshop will be attended by engineers and managers selected by IEC National Committees. Participants will attend a dedicated workshop alongside recipients from other nations, where they will learn more about the IEC, standardization strategies, and conformity assessment. They will also receive an invitation to attend the technical meetings where standards are developed, will have an opportunity to observe a meeting of the IEC Standardization Management Board, the guidance of a mentor, a visit to local industry, and much more. Recipients will be financially supported for their travel and up to three nights of accommodation.

U.S. stakeholders are encouraged to nominate young professionals who work for industry, the government, academia, consumer organizations, or any entity within the U.S. voluntary standards and conformity assessment community that uses, benefits from, or contributes to the IEC's work in electrotechnical standardization and conformance to be one of three U.S. representatives at the workshop through the USNC's Young Professionals Competition. Candidates should hold a role that involves them with standardization or conformance from a technical or managerial perspective within their organization. This program is targeted towards individuals who are in the first 10 to 15 years of their professional career, post university.

Nominations must be submitted electronically to Charlie Zegers, general secretary of the USNC ( by April 30, 2010.

The selection process will be primarily based on the nominee's demonstrated leadership and dedication within standardization and conformity assessment activities, vision of the strategic or commercial impact of standards and conformance, and significant accomplishments in his or her chosen field of activity. Candidates will be assessed by a selection panel comprised of USNC Officers, standing committee chairs, and a pool of USNC Honorary Life Members. The three winners will be notified in July 2010.
