Ann Campbell Laidlaw to receive Chapin Award

Feb '12
American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) will honor Ann Campbell Laidlaw as the 2011 recipient of The Harold C. Chapin Award in recognition for her outstanding service to the Association. Laidlaw will receive the Chapin Scroll at an Awards Luncheon on March 23, 2012, during the Association's 2012 International Conference in Charlotte, N.C., USA.

A member of AATCC since 1979, Ann Laidlaw has served with honor and distinction in the research, education, and outreach functions of the Association. Laidlaw joined AATCC while a student, and continues to influence and promote the mission and vision of the Association through her involvement with color science research, education, and training programs.

Laidlaw is an active member of the AATCC research committees, administrative committees, and the Concept 2 Consumer (C2C) Interest Group, which she chaired for four years. She has served on the AATCC Board of Directors. Laidlaw represents AATCC on the Inter-Society Color Council (ISCC) and she also headed the US delegation for the ISO/TC38/SC1 Meetings held in Paris, France, during July 2010.

Laidlaw has published several articles on color technology in AATCC Review, AATCC International Conference proceedings, and served as co-author of the recently published AATCC Color Guidebook. Laidlaw has generously served as an ambassador for AATCC in her research and outreach, including presenting and moderating at AATCC workshops, symposia, and the International Conference, as well as for the AATCC webinar series. She also performs outreach to students: serving as master of ceremonies of the AATCC Textile Bowl from its debut in 1999 through 2008, and representing the Association at colleges and universities.

The Chapin Award was established in 1958 in honor of Harold C. Chapin, professor of chemistry at Lowell Textile School, who served as national secretary of AATCC for nearly 25 years. The award is presented each year to a senior member, with at least 20 years continuous membership in AATCC, who has contributed outstanding service, enabling the Association to attain the objectives for which it was founded.

AATCC is the world's leading not-for-profit textile professional association, serving the textile industry since 1921. AATCC, headquartered in Research Triangle Park, N.C., USA, provides test method development, quality control materials, and professional networking for members throughout the world.
