Dec. 7, 2007
On Dec. 6, the American National Standards Institute’s (ANSI) board of directors appointed its officers and nine new and five returning board members for the term beginning in 2008.

Robert W. Noth will serve his third one-year term as chairman of the board and will be joined by two re-appointed vice chairmen, Arthur Cote of the National Fire Protection Association and James T. Pauley, vice president of industry and government relations at Schneider Electric/Square D Co. Appointed vice-chairs Laura E. Hitchcock of The Boeing Company and James A. Thomas, president of ASTM International, will take the positions of retiring officers. George W. Arnold of the National Institute of Standards and Technology will continue his service as immediate past chairman.

Nine new members were elected directors-at-large and will serve three-year terms, ending Dec. 31, 2010:

  • Patrick B. Davis, Twenty in Ten coordinator, energy efficiency and renewable energy, U.S. Department of Energy
  • Bruce A. Harding, professor of mechanical engineering technology, Purdue University

In addition to the new members of the ANSI board, five members were re-elected and will continue to serve until Dec. 31, 2010:
