The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) Awards Committee announced Tessa Stillman as the recipient of its 2018 Distinguished Service to Powder Metallurgy (PM) Award during POWDERMET2018, the International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials, in San Antonio, Texas, June 17–20. This annual award recognises individuals who have served the North American PM industry in an active capacity for at least twenty-five years and who their peers believe deserve special recognition.

Tessa Stillman, the MPIF’s Senior Manager, Standards & Technical services , began her career with the federation in 1973 as a part-time typist. Over the years, she has held various management and administrative positions and has worked with numerous boards and committees for the MPIF and APMI. She works closely with the MPIF Technical Board and is said to have guided the annual MPIF/APMI Technical Program Committees, and the related speakers/session chairmen activities, since 1980. Stillman has also been involved in all MPIF standards development work since the early 1980s.

She received SAE International’s Forest R. McFarland Award in 2001 for her PM Materials Committee activities, and in 2017 was recipient of ASTM International’s B09 Committee on Metal Powders and Metal Powder Products Distinguished Service Award. After forty-five years working with the MPIF, it was announced that she will retire at the end of this year.
