Dr Anthony Kachenko wins "Young Leader Award"

Dr Anthony Kachenko has been recognised for his outstanding achievement and contribution to our industry by being presented with the "Young Leader Award" at the 2015 Standards Awards. In his work on Standards Australia’s Technical Committee CS-037, Garden Soils and Potting Mixes, as drafting leader for AS 2303, he skilfully managed to achieve consensus among many divergent views in an emerging area of standardisation.

He has been a strong champion of the standardisation process within the industry and his commitment to the standards process has achieved excellent outcomes.

The Young Leader Award rewards and acknowledges a young professional who has demonstrated great involvement in standardisation, by effectively representing the views of their industry in national or international committees and has willingly undertaken active roles, projects or initiatives in their committees.
