Conference Overview
Join us in Boston at the Conference Center in Waltham Woods for three days of learning, discovery and networking opportunities! This year’s conference focuses on the opportunities that innovation presents to quality professionals in the 21st century. Expand the growth of quality globally by collaborating, innovating, and networking locally in a community forum dedicated to providing the most up to date information on changing standards (e.g. ISO 9001:2015), risk-based thinking, and the latest quality tools and techniques. On the first day of pre-conference tutorials, gain deep domain specific knowledge in various Bodies of Knowledge from subject matter experts in Quality. Then attend the conference the next two days to hear from and interact with well-known authorities and the foremost opinion leaders and influencers in the Quality community.

Hello from your 2016 – 2017 Region 1 Director

Hello Everyone and Happy New Year,

First, I would like to apologize for the delay in getting this letter out to everyone. As you all know, the end of the year, end of the month and then the beginning of a new year is very busy for us all at work and home. So now I would like to introduce myself and give some information about some upcoming events.

My name is John Conner, your new ASQ Region 1 Director for the 2016 – 2017 term. Before I continue I would like to thank Jim Shore for his service for the last 4 yrs and thank him for staying on as Deputy Regional Director. I would also like to thank Aaron Jones, who assisted Jim, for staying on as Deputy Regional Director. Having them both assisting me definitely is appreciated.

So a little about myself, I have been involved in quality for over 15 years starting as a Final Inspector in a paper mill, Texon Int.,and also Lead Internal auditor, I have worked at Fountain Plating as Senior Quality Administrator, and currently hold the position of Asst Quality Manager for Aero Fastener Co. in Westfield, Ma.. I currently hold certificates for CQIA and CQT and I am planning on testing for a new certificate later this year.

Now I would like to take this time to welcome all the members of each Sections Leadership Team and say “Thank You!” for volunteering and your willingness to give up some of your time for this great organization. As we embark on this new journey of the ASQ 2020 plan I hope each of you will take a personal stake in your sections strategic plan.

I am thinking of starting a Region 1 newsletter to be sent out periodically to keep everyone up to speed to what is going on at ASQ. This newsletter will also include any conferences or trainings going on in our region. If you would like a section event mentioned, let me know and I will add to my update. Currently BOSCON 2016 and NEQC 2016 conference committees have a call for papers and are scheduling their perspective programs. Also ASQ and NEQC are hosting a number of trainings built around the new 2015 ISO. Watch your email for notifications.

I hope all will attend the Region 1 Member Leader Training to be held in November, place to be determined and as always there is no cost to attend. This training is open to everyone, not just Leadership Team members, so if you know someone who may be interested in serving or is planning to serve on the team, bring them with you. If you have any ideas, suggestions, or would like to assist, please let me know.

All the Regional Directors will be attending the SAC Meeting next week and I will be looking to host a conference call in the next few weeks with all section Chairs and both DRD’s if available. I will be sharing what is going on at ASQ and looking for feedback on issues and the needs for each section and for the region as a whole. I am here to help you when I can and also to ensure we are all meeting the requirements set forth by ASQ.

I look forward to meeting with each leadership team and each section’s members. At this time I ask that each section Chair forward a schedule of meetings, Leadership Team and Section, so I can plan a visit. I just would like to say that I am happy to serve you and represent you at ASQ. My goal is to ensure we all have the tools needed to succeed at meeting our goals as a team whether it is for the section or the region.

John Conner
