Welcome ASQ members!

We are still seeking assistance from our members on the PROGRAMMING committee. This committee is responsible for finding & scheduling speakers for BOTH the Technical AND Membership Sessions at our monthly meetings. If you can help by speaking at one of the sessions yourself, can recommend a speaker or can assist the committee on a regular basis, please contact the Section Chair or another Leadership member.

To receive monthly email updates from the Section, update your email information at ASQ National.

Section 800 will not distribute your email address or send unnecessary messages.
