IASA Executive Board Congratulates Kevin Bradley

The Public Service Medal (PSM) in recognition of “outstanding service by employees of the Australian Government,” was conferred upon IASA member, colleague, and past President Kevin Bradley on May 3rd 2018 by the Governor-General of Australia, the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove in Canberra.

Kevin has had a major impact on IASA. As Vice-Chair of the Technical Committee, he contributed as editor and author of much of the content for the very successful TC-04 Guidelines on the Production and Preservation of Digital Audio Objects. This publication has become an international standard and has been translated into multiple languages. As President of IASA (2008-2011), Kevin revitalized the association by overseeing a major constitution revision and gaining IASA status as a registered entity under UK Law.

Kevin’s contributions at an international level includes service on the UNESCO Memory of the World Subcommittee on Technology and as a member of the UNESCO Information for All Programme Technical Committee. Kevin has also contributed towards the International Standards Organisation, American National Standards Institute, Audio Engineering Society Joint Technical Commission IT9-5, as well as the Audio Engineering Standards Committee.

In 2015, IASA was proud to present the Special Recognition Award to Kevin for Services to the Advancement of Preservation of the Audio and Video Heritage, and Leadership in the Advancement and Recognition of IASA.

The IASA Executive Board congratulates Kevin on this most deserving honour.
