The Hartford Section of the American Society for Quality (ASQ) would like to extend sincere condolences to the family of Tony Foley at this sad time of his passing (Jan. 20, 2018). Tony was a gentleman, tireless worker, statistician, quality expert and colleague to many members of the Hartford Section and other quality professionals throughout his long career in quality and statistics. For more than 35 years Tony has been involved with the Hartford Section serving on the Executive Board in various capacities including duties involving education and recertification including his wise advice on many matters. He will be missed.
The Executive Board of Hartford Section, ASQ 0103
Quality improvement in any organization requires the vision, effort and persistence of those individuals who are part of that organization. As Quality professionals, we all know that recognition for those efforts can go a long way towards improving the morale and motivation. In recognition of that fact, the Hartford Section sponsors an annual Quality Recognition Award, the Joe Trowbridge Award. The purpose of the award is recognize those individuals or teams who have made significant improvements in quality and productivity in their workplace over the past year. To be eligible, nominees need not be members of the Hartford Section ASQ or even be part of the Quality organization. Past award winners have included Inspectors, Engineers, Technicians, Managers, and teams.
This year, award winners will be recognized at the June membership dinner meeting. Winners and their significant others attend as guests of the Hartford Section. At the meeting, they will be presented with a plaque and coupons for upcoming ASQ dinner meetings. The coupons will allow them to attend three dinner meetings as guests of the Hartford Section.
The Awards Committee reserves the right to give out more than one award in a given year.
ASQ Hartford will no longer be processing recertifications. This process is now being offered via the global body of ASQ. If it is time for you to recertify, please visit https://asq.org/cert/recertify. For assistance, please contact a customer care representative at 800-248-1946.

The purpose of the fledgling society was the improvement and advancement of measuring and control devices used in manufacturing and engineering practices.
On May 12, 1970 the American Society for Quality Control chartered the Hartford Society for Measurement as an official section of the Society.
In 1988, Governor William O'Neill designated October as Quality Month in Connecticut in recognition of the valuable contributions of the Society to the growth and development of the state's economy.
In 1993, the Hartford Section affiliated with the Connecticut Quality Council to further their common goals of promoting the development of all facets of quality.
From that small beginning membership in the Hartford Section has grown steadily to an average of 175 during the 1950's and 1960's, to 700 by the turn of the century.
Today, the Hartford Section is a thriving organization, continuing to meet the needs of its membership in times of rapid change in business relationships, in technology, and in the marketplace.
