Message from the Chair Bill Forthofer
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you (our membership) for your continued support of ASQ Hartford Section during my first year as your Chair.
Our Programs Committee, chaired by Dennis Gareau, as well as our Education Committee, chaired by Vivian Vidal Otero, continue to be extremely busy over the last few months lining up presenters for our monthly membership meetings as well as launching our Education Courses/Workshops. Our September Membership meeting has been firmed up and we are working on additional meeting topics for October and November of this year. We also welcome our new Publicity Chair Steve Gabbert who has already made a significant upgrade to our website. You can now view previous event presentations.
We have also been successful in offering the CQE, CQT (15 Students) and CQA Courses (5 Students) that started in February/finished in May, that were held at the Connecticut State University Institute of Technology and Business Development. See Table Below: Note those listed as TBD are still under development. Please provide feedback to the Education Chair if you have an interest in being an Instructor or ideas for Quality Topics to be considered.
I hope to see some more new faces at our monthly meetings; this is a great opportunity to expand your awareness in the Quality field and “Network” with other Quality Professionals. Familiar faces are always welcomed back and I hope those numbers grow as well!!
