We have launched an the official LinkedIn company page to support the Section. Please follow the link below to join:
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.

Lean continues to grow in popularity and use, seen as a strategy and set of tools that assist with eliminating waste and increasing efficiency. However, organizations are realizing that the initial wins after implementing this strategy can be challenging to sustain over time.
Why? Well, as Peter Drucker so aptly put it “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”. In order to sustain wins and continuously improve, organizations must create a culture of quality and a culture of lean.
In this gift ASQ is sharing resources that will help you toward that end, to assist you in transforming your organization into a lean culture. Included are:
• New webcast, The Joy of Lean
• Complete e-book
• Additional webcasts, videos, and case studies
We hope this month’s bundle gives you a few more tools and resources to create or sustain a lean culture in your organization.
Your exclusive member gift will be available through March 31, 2017.
Kaizen, the Japanese term for a “change for the better,” is synonymous with continuous improvement in quality. In practice, it’s an approach to continuous improvement that focuses on simplification by breaking down complex processes into their sub-processes and then improving them.
In this new content bundle, we’re diving into various iterations of this powerful improvement method and sharing with you:
• New webcast detailing the book, Kaizen Kanban
• Complete e-book, Modular Kaizen
• Additional webcasts, videos, and case studies to support your understanding and implementation of the kaizen efforts
• And much more!
We hope this month’s new bundle benefits you in your ongoing pursuit of becoming more efficient, effective, and competitive in serving your customers.
