The award was conferred at the IFIP General Assembly being held in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

ACS President Anthony Wong spoke of the contribution made by Mr Strous to the profession.

“This honour is a wonderful recognition of the exceptional service undertaken by Leon. Not only does he hold the title of the longest serving President in the history of IFIP, but he has overseen an extraordinary series of professional programs.”

“Our profession is only able to grow when we are guided by leaders who can inspire others to follow in their footsteps. Leon Strous is, without a doubt, one of those leaders.
