Kiarash Arangdad received one of the AATCC (the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists) Future Leaders Award at the recently held International Conference in USA. The award recognises young professionals in the fields of textiles, apparel, and related material sciences. AATCC is a not-for-profit association serving textile professionals.

Arangdad is a research and development chemist at ITG/Burlington. In 2007 and 2009, respectively, Arangdad earned a BSc and an MSc degree in chemical textile engineering at Tehran Azad University in Tehran, Iran. In 2015, he earned a PhD in fibre and polymer science from the Wilson College of Textiles at North Carolina State University. Arangdad joined AATCC in 2016. He is a member of AATCC stain resistance, antimicrobial activity, and insect resistance test method committees, as well as water resistance, absorbency and wetting agent evaluation test method committee and global sustainability technology test method committee, according to an AATCC press release.

Nominees for the AATCC Future Leaders Award must be AATCC members who are 39 years old or younger and actively engaged in the greater textile or related industries. They must display leadership skills and have a history of service to AATCC or the greater textile and related industries. A key quality of successful candidates is a desire to become more involved with the objectives of AATCC: to increase expertise, encourage research, and establish channels for the interchange of professional knowledge. Nominees must agree to join the AATCC young professionals committee and must participate, as their professional commitments allow, in the work of the committee.

The award includes a framed certificate signed by the AATCC president and the Interest Group (IG) chairs and a special pin. (GK)
