NCDA&CS chief deputy commissioner receives international award of merit

RALEIGH — David Smith of Raleigh has been named a Fellow of ASTM International, a global organization that develops technical standards for materials, products, system, and services, after receiving the 2009 ASTM International Award of Merit at a recent conference.

The International Award of Merit is the highest award granted by the society, which currently has more than 30,000 members worldwide. Smith has been active in ASTM since 1987 and served as ASTM chairman in 2005.

"We are proud of David's involvement in this organization," said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. "It is important that employees be involved in organizations such as ASTM to ensure that we are providing the most up-to-date, fair and accurate services possible."

Smith is the chief deputy commissioner for the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Before being named chief deputy commissioner, Smith served as director of the NCDA&CS Standards Division for more than a decade. He has remained active in ASTM, currently serving on several international committees.
