Standards Leadership Council – What is it, Can you help?

What Is The Standards Leadership Council?

Earlier this year, the executive leaders from each of the eight standards organizations most crucial to our industry met to form the Standards Leadership Council. Our objectives are simple. By working collaboratively, we want to:

Identify areas of intersection to avoid creating duplicate or conflicting standards.

  • Identify opportunities for synergy, so we can build on our successes together.
  • Better deliver the value proposition message for standards implementation.
  • Ensure maximum member benefits through participation in standards organizations.

How You Can Help?

On June 28, 2012, the Standards Leadership Council will host an historic event. All eight standards organizations will be present in Houston, Texas for a one day meeting. You will have an opportunity to discover what each of the organizations is doing, and to discuss how we can work together to enhance the value proposition for you, our members.

We ask senior thought leaders from our member organizations to spend the day with us. Tell us what you think, and hear what others think. As a community, we have a tremendous opportunity to build synergy through standards. Help us realize this vision.

When:June 28, 2012, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

Where: Marriott Westchase Hotel, 2900 Briarpark Drive, Houston, Texas 77042
