The Business Forms Management Association (BMFA) presented the Jo Warner Award to City of
Mississauga's Forms Specialist Julie Stephens. Julie was one of three recipients to
receive the prestigious award this year.
The Jo Warner Award is a lifetime award focused on honoring an individual who has made
outstanding contributions to the form systems profession. Julie was one of three
individuals who received this award jointly for their work on developing and guiding the
creation of a national forms management standard. Julie was the Co-Chair of the committee
and was instrumental in guiding the standard development process to adoption.
The Committee of the Canadian National Standard on Forms Management (CANCGSB-6.2-2009)
recently published the approved national standard for forms management for Canada. This
standard represents a significant milestone for the profession. It provides structure and
definition and can be applied to other countries, including the United States.
