Highlights of the 2013 Annual General Meeting

SERGE VILLARD AWARD

Harold Malle received the Serge Villard Award, for his outstanding commitment and contributions to the accreditation program as a volunteer Assessor. Harold is also a member of the CALA Advisory Panel and Program Committee. Serge Villard was one of the three originating directors for the Association.

Harold earned his M.Sc from York University and is currently the Quality Assurance Chemist with Environment Canada’s Emergencies, Operational Analytical Laboratories & Research Support Division, Water Science & Technology Directorate, located in Burlington, Ontario.

Harold has been serving in his three volunteer positions with CALA since 2003 and since that time has conducted 26 assessments – 14 of them as a Lead Assessor.  He has also served as Chair of the CALA Program Committee for 5 years.  He also oversees the production of many of CALA PT samples.

Harold’s wealth of technical expertise contributes greatly to the reputation of the CALA Accreditation and PT programs. His leadership skills and grasp of quality systems have made him a very effective Lead Assessor, as evidenced by positive feedback from both team members and laboratories that he has assessed. He is always willing to assist with assessments and Biennial Assessor Training activities when requested by staff.
