Message from the New Haven Section Chair


CHAIR MESSAGE:
We are coming to the end of another program year for the New Haven Section of ASQ as we join our colleagues from APICS for a facility tour of Unicorr in North Haven. The Section leadership is in the planning stages for the next year (September – May) and we would like to solicit your input for some possible topics. Do you find that some of your new hires are lacking in a basic quality skill such as root cause/corrective action or data analysis? Let us know, because you are probably not the only one with the issue and we can work to find a speaker to help you out. Does your company provide a unique product or service, or have you broken the code on how to deal with a specific problem in your industry? If you are willing to share, maybe you would be open to hosting a facility tour. Please provide your feedback/suggestions to anyone of us listed on the Section Leadership Committee.
Have you tried logging in to the new my ASQ feature on the ASQ website? This quote is from a recent email I received, “my ASQ is a centralized online community providing timely, relevant, and customizable engagement for ASQ members and quality professionals around the globe.” By updating your profile with your experience and interests you can network with other ASQ members with similar interests. You can also have control over the info you receive from ASQ and how often you receive it. I encourage you to log in and try this new element of your ASQ membership. At the same time, I would like to remind you that you can’t spend all your time sitting and staring at a computer screen, it’s just not healthy! Come out to one of our programs next year and meet some like-minded quality professionals.
Sincerely
Bill Folsom,
Chair, New Haven ASQ
