Recognizing our Members for Leadership and Excellence

Overview

The leadership and expertise of CSA Group’s committee members are critical to helping us create a better, safer, and more sustainable world. Each year, we honor members whose contributions and commitment are especially noteworthy by presenting the John Jenkins Award and the Award of Merit. Past winners hold these awards in high regard since they are nominated by their fellow members and peers. For the first time, in 2019 we will bestow the Young Professional Award to one of our young professional volunteer members who has made significant contributions to the field of standardization.
