      For Board Members


Greetings Members, Quality Community, and All Interested Parties,

I am honored to serve ASQ LI as the 2015 Section Chair. Our Section has a great team of volunteers ready and willing to devote their time and expertise supporting our members and community. The 2015 BOD members are shown on the website "Executive Board" tab. We are always looking for members to come forward - we want to hear from you and we hope to see you at our events, conferences, and course offerings.

The goals and objectives of the LI section are virtually the same as in prior years as we are committed to the ASQ mission to provide member value. We have established a business plan for 2015 that the BOD will review and update quarterly. Key elements include commitments to provide several events throughout the year including but not limited to after work events and courses through the Seifer Institute, utilizing and enhancing information sharing, and continuing and growing University relationships / partnerships. All events and educational courses will be listed on the web site when registration is ready to be accepted. We will also continue to communicate via our social media channels and section email account.

Our Section has approximately 400 members and we want to retain and grow our membership. We look forward to seeing you at our events and encourage you to pursue certifications that will help strengthen and validate your skills & expertise. Although there are numerous industries on LI with various Quality systems and programs, everyone should be able to learn something new by exposure to diverse industry practices. In addition, the ability to grow your own personal network cannot be underestimated.

Our first after work event includes member recognition as well as "Speed Networking". Details of this event are provided on the website here and sign up instructions here. Please plan to attend - you won't be disappointed!

As a native Long Islander who has worked in engineering and quality management roles in several industries (Defense, Telecommunications, Nanotechnology), I appreciate the need to be flexible, agile, but relentless in ensuring that quality programs are aligned to both requirements and business goals. I look forward to working with all of you. Thank you in advance for your support and participation!
