PIA/GATF's Call for Nominations: Robert F. Reed Technology Medal

Friday, November 17, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Pittsburgh, PA, November 16, 2006 - Printing Industries of America/Graphic Arts Technical Foundation (PIA/GATF) is seeking to honor an outstanding engineer, scientist, or researcher in the printing industry. Nominations for the Robert F. Reed Technology Medal are due December 1, 2006. Established in 1976 by PIA/GATF's Ben Franklin Society, this award perpetuates the memory of Robert F. Reed (1905ñ1973), "Dean of Lithography." Reed's contributions to the understanding of the lithographic processes and materials were, perhaps, the most significant and important made by any man of his time. Selection Criteria: A nominee must be a technically or scientifically oriented person who has worked as an engineer or a scientist in the graphic communications industry for a period of 10 years or more. A nominee must have an outstanding record of technical and scientific accomplishments that have measurably aided the scientific development of the graphic communications industry. It is preferred that such activities be extended over a period of time and not be confined to one project or development. Besides joining an impressive roster of printing industry notables with an outstanding record of technical and scientific accomplishments, the recipient will be presented with an engraved and die-struck bronze medal. This year's presentation will take place at the 2007 TAGA Annual Technical Conference, March 18ñ21, in Pittsburgh, PA. To receive a nomination form, contact Deena Hower, PIA/GATF's marketing assistant, by phoning 412-259-1702 or by emailing dhower@piagatf.org. Written requests can be directed to Deena Hower, 200 Deer Run Road, Sewickley, PA 15143-2600.
