Kristin Macey, CDFA’s Director of Measurement Standards, was recently honored by the Western Weights and Measures Association with the Ray Rebuffo Award, which is presented to individuals for demonstrating outstanding leadership in advancing weights and measures principles.
Macey, who was appointed Director of Measurement Standards in 2010, is known for her commitment to developing standards for alternative fuels, such as hydrogen, and for her work to protect consumers through accuracy in product measurement and labeling.
“All of us at CDFA send our congratulations to Kristin for this award, which is richly deserved,” said CDFA Secretary Karen Ross. “Kristin’s enthusiasm for her work and fascination with all facets of weights and measures are a great benefit for the people of California. We are very fortunate to have her.”
The Division of Measurement Standards works closely with county sealers of weights and measures, who carry out the vast majority of weights and measures enforcement activities at the local level, ensuring fair competition in commerce and accurate value comparison for consumers.
