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.

Changes usually don’t fail because there’s something inherently flawed about the change itself, they usually fail for human reasons. In most cases the promoters of the change did not attend to the healthy, real, and predictable reactions of normal people to a disturbance of their routines.
In this new ASQ Member Gift, they’ve gathered lots of great resources for you from their repository of knowledge, from introductions to the basic elements of change management to detailed case studies, to full e-books and expert videos on how to successfully maneuver the sometimes treacherous waters of change toward desired ends.
Enjoy this gift of resources and save it for your next transition or implementation—because if you’re not going through a change right now, it’s coming.
Your exclusive member gift will be available through July 31, 2016

Everyday, people interact with machines and/or processes in almost all situations or environments. This interaction between human and technology can be studied as a single system where each component works together to complete a specific goal. This presentation focuses on how humans play a role in this system and how visual aids can be used in the system to achieve usability, efficiency, safety and error-free performance.
