Information on NACE's IMPACT Study and the NIICAP program was presented as well. T h e O u t s t a n d i n g S t u d e n t Aw a r d , supported by BP, is given by the NACE Foundation and was created to recognize exceptional service to NACE or the NACE Foundation by a NACE student member in good standing.

To present attendees with a broad discussion of pipeline safety, the ever popular Pipeline Safety Forum with the U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), along with the mostattended forum from past conferences, Corrosion and Punishment, were combined this year into a twopart forum, "Working in the Pipeline Industry : The Real World Need for a Safety Culture," chaired by Kevin Garrity with Mears Group, Inc. The first part of the forum, "PHMSA Pipeline Safety," presented a conver sation that addressed corrosion and pipeline safety in terms of how the regulatory world looks now and how it may look in the future. The legal side of pipeline safety and corro sion was explored in the second part of the forum, Corrosion and Punishment, now in its 11th year. The session emphasized how all levels of personnel who sign off on pipeline int eg rity—in clu din g n onm an a gem ent technical personnel—can be held criminally responsible if pipeline failures occur. This year's W hitney Award Lecture, delivered by 2016 Willis Rodney Whitney Award re cipi ent EnHou Han , F NAC E, discussed the corrosion process of key materials in nuclear power plants and understanding the underlying corrosion mechanisms. NACE CIP Instructor Rob Roy shares his "Lessons Learned" experience with the audience at Corrosive Chronicles Theater. Alan Mayberry, PHMSA's deputy associate administrator for policy and programs, presented a perspective from his agency. Nafseh Ebrahimi with Tim Bieri (left) and Jeff Waytashek.
