A former member of the Editorial Review board for Circuits Assembly magazine, Lambert also developed, published and conducted seminars on “Deadline to Lead Free” and “Thriving in a RoHS/WEEE Environment.” He published and presented numerous papers on soldering and cleaning at various technical seminars and exhibitions worldwide.

In addition to being a past IPC chairman of many committees for soldering and cleaning, Lambert is a charter member on UNEP – the United Nations Environmental Program, a member of ICOLP – Industry Cooperative for Ozone Layer Protection, and a member of the mechanical engineering advisory board at the University of Massachusetts. He is also a recipient of the IPC President’s Award in 1989, a charter member of the IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 committees, and recipient of many distinguished committee service, leadership and special recognition awards for the development of IPC training programs.
