May has seen Standards Australia celebrate many important events.
Last week, we hosted the Standards Awards.
The Standards Awards recognise and celebrate outstanding and innovative contributions of experts and technical committees in the development of Australian and international standards. There are more than 5,000 contributors who work with Standards Australia in the development of standards and trusted solutions, and their work and ongoing commitment is greatly appreciated.
The Awards were held in person for the first time in three years and it was wonderful to meet face-to-face after the last two years of travel restrictions.
While in Melbourne for the Standards Awards, we hosted our Members Forum.
The forum gave us the opportunity to regroup with our valued Members and have a dialogue on matters of strategic importance to Standards Australia. The first session was a panel led discussion open to Members and guests and it provided meaningful discussions around how the Australian economy and community should respond to changing global dynamics, and the role of standards.
Accessibility and collaboration will continue to be key priorities for Standards Australia, driving the work we’ll deliver together over the coming months.
Speaking of the future, May also saw us open entries to the Standards Australia NEXTgen program.
The NEXTgen program is a cost free 10-month professional development program designed to up-skill participants’ CV’s, increase their standards knowledge and help them make important industry connections.
Applications will stay open until 30th June. If you have 5-7 years of professional experience and would like to learn more about the standards development process, please visit our website
