AATCC will honor Robert Frederick “Freddy” Miller as the 2012 recipient of The Harold C. Chapin Award in recognition of Miller’s outstanding service to the Association.

Miller will receive the Chapin Scroll at an Awards Luncheon on April 11 during the Association's 2013 International Conference in Greenville, S.C., USA. A member of AATCC since 1979, Miller has served with great distinction in the administrative functions of AATCC and the AATCC Foundation Inc.

He has been active on the local level, where he served as Chair (two terms), Vice-Chair, Secretary, Corporate Membership Chair, Individual Membership Chair, and Technical Committee Chair of the Piedmont Section.

He served as a National Councilor of the Piedmont Section for two terms, and when regions were organized, he represented the MidSouth Region as a Regional Board Member for five years. In that position, he was instrumental in merging the Northern Piedmont, Palmetto, and Piedmont Sections under the umbrella of the Piedmont Section, strengthening the section and encouraging active technical meeting programs.

At the international level, Miller currently serves on the AATCC Building and Grounds Committee, the Constitution and Bylaws Committee, the Strategic Planning Review Committee, and AATCC Foundation Board of Directors. As a member of the Piedmont Section, Miller served on the education and scholarship committees for the Piedmont Section scholarships and the Charles H. Stone Scholarship. His knowledge of fiscal management and investments helped to increase those scholarship funds, allowing for more and larger scholarships to be offered. Miller was instrumental in transferring the fiscal management of the Charles H. Stone Scholarship to the AATCC Foundation Inc., and has served on the Foundation Board of Directors since 2005, providing insightful direction on the Stone and other scholarships.

He has been very active developing and building upon the mission and vision of the Association. As a councilor and regional board member, he served on three strategic planning committees, and chaired the Ad Hoc Strategic Planning Committee from September 1998 through May 2000. He chaired the Individual Membership Committee, and served on the Corporate Membership Committee for two terms. He also served on the Publications Committee, Constitution and Bylaws Committee, Committee on Conferences, and Subjects and Speakers Bureau.

Miller earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Textile Chemistry specializing in Dyeing & Finishing from North Carolina State University (NCSU) in 1982. While attending, he completed three summer internship programs with Hickory Dyeing & Winding (package dyeing of nylon and polyester); Travis Knits (jet dyeing and range finishing of apparel fabric); and Mohican Mills (beam, beck, and jet dyeing of polyester, nylon, cotton, acrylic, and fiber blends).

He also successfully developed a new dyeing procedure for surgical silk sutures as a Senior Project at NCSU; and was a Student Speaker at the AATCC International Conference & Exhibition in Atlantic City in 1982.
