ASQ Palomar welcomes all visitors and members. We have many exciting programs planned throughout the year.
Please let us know what topics you would like to hear or present at our Tech Clinic or Keynote Address. We seek to provide that value-addition to your profession through an increased awareness of Quality. Your advice and guidance, regardless of level, benefits everyone and is always encouraged.
Facilitate the professional development of our members by providing information on quality tools and techniques, an opportunity to network with other quality professionals and share best practices, information on education and training alternatives, and professional certification.
If you would like to volunteer for a Technical Clinic or Keynote address on any subject related to Quality, please share your information & expertise. Contact any Board Member for scheduling:
Technical Clinics: 30 – 45 Minutes, PowerPoint or similar
Keynote Address: 60 Minutes, PowerPoint or similar
Anyone interested in presenting a technical clinic or a keynote topic? We would like to the upcoming months lined up in the newsletter. The Board can support your involvement either for the technical clinic, keynote or Board involvement! Bring ideas to the chapter dinner meeting, or email any one of the Board Members.
