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:
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.
- 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
- 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.
