As we head into the end of the 2018 we are looking forward to events on Inspiring Innovation in Lancaster and on Managing the Supply Chain in York. We want to thank our host for our last event, Carlisle Construction Materials, where our speaker Brad Williams from PTC dove into Industry 4.0 with practical examples that demonstrate real applications of the theory and buzzwords. With my final Chair's Message, I would like to highlight some things about ASQ Section 503:

  • Attendance at business events and mixers has steadily declined across most professional and local associations but not ASQ Section 503. We have an engaged membership that shows up, asks questions, provides input and fills positions on the executive team. Our Section is one of the best in the country and I am proud to be associated with this group. The national organization is pushing some changes that we are unsure about, but we will continue to operate and thrive locally.
  • I would like to thank our leadership team for their support through my time as Chair. The Executive Committee continues to step up to challenges and has provided me endless support.
  • Thank you to both the members and the committee for allowing us to try new things and push the group forward.
  • Quality professionals recognize how damaging the 'we have always done it this way' approach can be and our section has avoided it, allowing us to continually improve and refine our offerings. Changes include things like the York Manufacturing History event cosponsored with SME, the David M. Little Scholarship, alternative meeting venues and styles and interesting on-site tours.
Finally, I would like to thank Craig Aiello. He will be taking over as Chair, I am confident that you will be in good hands. Thank you and look forward to seeing you at the upcoming meetings.
