It was a great privilege to have been appointed as Canada’s IEC Young Professional of the Year! We would like to share this video from the 2015 IEC Annual General Meeting in Belarus that aims to summarize the benefits and value of being involved in the standardization process.

Regardless of age, we highly recommend participating and taking an active part in shaping these international standards. For young professionals looking to differentiate themselves, this is one avenue to do so, which provides an added insight into emerging technologies and standards.

For those interested, please feel free to visit the following IEC site for more information. We encourage you to contact your IEC National Committee representative and/or Robert McLaren (YP Programme Coordinator) for membership details.

Good luck to all nominees for the 2016 IEC Young Professional of the Year!
