During the beginning portions of 2018 it is important to plan out the year to address required changes to your QMS, continue to meet your customer requirements and the expectations of your management team.

During this busy time, don't forget one of the key principals for managing your Quality System, listen to the voice of your customers. If you are getting complaints, the customer cares enough to speak up and you have an opportunity to fix the instance, ensure that it doesn't reoccur across your other customers and demonstrate that you are taking their concerns seriously.

Our ASQ section takes the same approach and welcomes your feedback from our meetings and throughout the year so we can ensure we too are listening to the voice of our members.

Our recent dinner meeting in York held in conjunction with SME chapter 22 was an unqualified success with nearly 60 attendees for an excellent presentation on the York Plan and our region's contributions to winning WWII.

We hope to continue that success with our February meeting in Harrisburg on 2/14 and speaker Craig Aiello, President of ASIX Quality, discussing Problem Solving techniques. With dinner, pricing and the presentation tailored for Valentine's Day. (Spouses & Guests will be charged the Member pricing instead of the higher nonmember Guest pricing). At the door pricing remains the same.
