Incoming Chair Message

Hi to all the current and past members, and those who are visiting our site:

The new fiscal year of 2005-2006 for ASQ has begun and as the new Chair I am honored to serve the ASQ NY/NJ Metropolitan Section. Our Section has many volunteers on our Executive Committee willing to devote their time and expertise supporting our Section’s growth and continued service to you our Section Members. I thank them all:

The objectives of this Section have not changed and remain a conduit for advancement of the theory and practice of Quality, and the allied arts and sciences, and the maintenance of high professional standing among our members and the community.

I am a Senior Member of ASQ and have been an active member in the NY/NJ Metropolitan Section since I moved to New York six years ago. I was one of the founding members of the ASQ Design and Construction Division and served as a regional chair for a number of years with that division.

I am happy to report that our Section has over 700 members; I am sad to say that I have meet only small percentage of our members. Your executive board truly works diligently to advance the goals of ASQ and the section, and we look forward to this year with hope of meeting you at our events.

Our two biggest programs each year are the Deming Conference (December Atlantic City) and the Annual Section Conference normally refereed to as either the September Conference or the Qtt Conference (September 16, 2005 Rutgers University, Newark Campus). We look forward to providing a very informative and interesting program each year at these events.  If you have ideas for programs and/or speakers for future programs or meetings, please contact me. As with any volunteer organization we are always looking for new members to step up and support the sections activities. To be involved is simple just call any of the executive board members and volunteer.

Did you know volunteers earn re-certification credits? If you have taken any of the ASQ certification exams, to maintain your certification after three years you may take the test again or attend our section meetings and conferences and obtain re-certification credits so you don’t have to do the retest.

If you are reading this, you have found our Web page. The executive meetings and general section meeting schedules are posted. Why not attend? It’s easy to register right on line and most of our meetings are free of any charge to members who register in advance. If there is a fee, it will be posted.

If you are new to the section or have never had the time to attend a Section Meeting or Executive Committee meeting chances are you don’t know what happens. You can find information pertaining to upcoming meetings, tours, educational courses, job openings, and other information of interest right here on our website.

Thank you all for your continued support and lets make this another banner year for ASQ NY/NJ Metro.

Sincerely,
Joe Borden P.E.; CQA
