Richard A. Hudnut Distinguished Service Award

Distinguished Service Award

Starting in 2020 and presented every other year thereafter, the Richard A. Hudnut Distinguished Service Award recognizes exemplary performance by BHMA members who have made a significant impact in the BHMA standard ‎or code development process through outstanding dedication, competence, exceptional ‎performance, and ingenuity.

This peer-nominated award was created to honor the legacy of Richard Hudnut, BHMA’s first Standards Coordinator from 1965 – 1995, who was responsible for setting the patterns and processes that guide the vigorous Standards Development Program that BHMA follows today.
