Sandor Juhasz – NY/NY Metropolitan Section Chair
Dear ASQ Member,

Hello and welcome to the NY/NJ Metropolitan Section of the American Society for Quality (ASQ). I
encourage you explore our site see what makes up our organization.

In my second year as Section Chair, I plan on continuing to build upon the strong foundation set by our
past chairs in providing our members with educational programs, engaging section events and opportunities to network with other quality professionals. Our approach is simple and straightforward.

“Provide an atmosphere for learning and a platform to expand the principles that make up ASQ.”

So I invite you to visit us during one of our upcoming EVENTS. This is a great opportunity to meet your fellow members; learn a little more about our section and get a taste of the programs we offer throughout the year.

In addition, if you would like to work on some exciting projects and become involved within the section, I invite you to contact anyone of the Committee Chairs to get started. Please visit this page for their contact information.

Please feel free to contact me via e-mail if you have any questions.

See you at the next meeting……

Regards,

Sandor G. Juhasz, Chair
NY/NJ Metropolitan Section
