ASQ members, your free September gift is here! The topic is A Beginner’s Guide to Quality.
The Metropolitan Section June 2015 Section Meeting will begin with networking among attendees, followed be a brief Section business meeting. The program will follow the business meeting and offer brief presentations by three attending Section members describing an instance or situation in their workplace where quality tools and/or practices were implemented to improve performance or to address a performance/organizational issue. Following each brief description of the performance/organizational situation and resolution (5 minutes), other Section members in attendance will be asked to provide comment and/or discussion on the situation presented (10 minutes).
The objective of this program is to:
- provide Section members the opportunity to network and build long-term professional relationships with one another
- allow Section members to share their workplace experiences with other fellow members and learn from one another

We had 90 responses out of 458 members, which is almost 20%. However, only 62 (69%) completed the entire questionnaire. At weekly intervals, we sent three reminder letters to those that did not respond.
Listed here are some details of the Survey:
28 (35%) out of 81 said that they attended a section Dinner Meeting last year. 35% of 458 members surveyed is 160. We certainly never had such numbers at our meeting. We must conclude that these 28 respondents are more active in the Section than the non-respondents.
When asked why they did not attend, a number responded that they were not aware of the meetings. “I did not get any invitation” was a common response.
The other major reason was that the meeting was too far from home or work. When asked for an alternate location most answered New York City. One said, “Every time I was interested it was in NJ”. We need to over-communicate to our members that they can reach NJ by public transportation. Continue reading Results of the August 2013 Membership Survey
