ASTM-Committee E10 on Nuclear Technology and Applications, Award of Appreciation "For Outstanding Leadership and Services to ASTM Subcommittee E10-01 As the Chairman of the Task Group that Developed the Revised Standard Guide for Selection and Calibration of Dosimetry Systems For Radiation Processing", 2001. Elected President of the Council of Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards (CIRMS). CIRMS is an independent, non-profit council that brings together experts involved in all aspects of ionizing radiation to discuss, review and assess developments and needs in this field. CIRMS was established and is sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Physics Laboratory, 2005.
