Section Meeting: Tour of Boyce Technologies – A Revolutionary Engineering and Manufacturing Facility

Boyce Technologies specializes in designing and manufacturing equipment for the mass transit market including emergency response systems, intercom systems, security alarm systems, radio and wireless networks, and customer information display systems. 

Founded in 2007, the company has grown from one employee, the owner Charles Boyce, to over 100.  In early 2018, the company moved into its present 100,000 square-foot headquarters in Long Island City.  One of their most well-known products is the Help Point Unit, found throughout New York City’s subway system. The kiosks, widely-recognized by their blue light and two-button system, use a digital voice over IP system to provide information, security and safety communications to thousands of commuters and visitors each day.  Recently, BTI has been engaged by the new company Charge to design and manufacture the proprietary docking stations for electric charging, storage and service stations of e-scooters and e-bikes.

February 2019 Section Meeting: NY Transit Museum Tour

The February 2019 Section Meeting will be preceded by a tour of the NY Transit Museum, located at 99 Schermerhorn Street Brooklyn, NY 11201.

Founded in 1976, the New York Transit Museum is dedicated to telling and preserving the stories of mass transportation – extraordinary engineering feats, workers who labored in the tunnels over 100 years ago, communities that were drastically transformed, and the ever-evolving technology, design, and ridership of a system that runs 24 hours a day, every day of the year.  This bears on and helps understand the state of quality and challenges it faced in those days.

Member Leader Training Opportunity

Greetings!

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.
