My name is David Levy. I am the elected Regional Director (RD) for Region 3. December 31, 2017 ends my term as RD. On January 1, 2018 Mike D’Onofrio, currently a Deputy RD (DRD) will take over as your new RD.
You may be wondering why I am telling you this. As a member of a section in Region 3 you should be aware that we serve your section in this elected position and your section leadership selected each of us for this position. Part of our role is representing you and your section on the Section Affairs Council (SAC) which established policies and practices for sections plus providing guidance in all that the section leaders do to serve you, the members.
Hopefully you are still with me. Both the RD role, and those of section leaders, is as a volunteer. ASQ refers to volunteers as Member Leaders. The RD position requires that we provide training to member leaders to help them understand their section roles and responsibilities and help deliver value to members.
Maybe you see where I’m going with this. Because member leaders are. . .members . . . we are inviting you, along with all current section member leaders to attend our annual Region 3 training, at no cost to you. So, whether you are a current section leader, considering becoming a section member leader, or had no clue, but are now interested in learning more, you are welcome to attend this event. Learn about ASQ, section operating requirements, and various roles in section leadership. Get a light breakfast, free lunch, snacks, and 0.8 re-certification units. Meet current leaders of your section. Network with other ASQ members in the region. It’ll be a good time.

Boyce Technologies‘ LIC facility is in Queens, minutes from midtown Manhattan. We are easily accessible by both public transportation and car. We are a short (5 minute) walk from both the LIRR & NYC Subway 7 line stations at Hunters Point. The facility is about a mile from the Long Island Expressway (last exit in Queens before entering the Midtown Tunnel). From points north and west take the Triboro (RFK) bridge into Queens. From points north and east take the Whitestone bridge into Queens. From NJ your best bet is to come across Manhattan to the Midtown tunnel. Long Islanders can get here via the LIE. Of course using your favorite GPS if you are driving in is the best approach. (MapIt)

Thank you for your time and warmest regards,
