Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Welcome to the 2017- 2018 program year for ASQ Section 1010, Ann Arbor

We start our program year with a joint meeting with the Greater Detroit Section 1000 and the Automotive Division, in September.   We will continue to have our monthly meetings and guest speakers on the first Monday of each month.  The meetings are at no cost, with light refreshments served at 5:30 pm and the program starts at 6:00 pm.  The meetings provide great education and a nice networking opportunity.  We have a great line up of speakers from a variety of areas so we hope to have a little something for everyone.  The schedule is posted on the website and in the newsletter.

We will introduce some enhancements this program year with a possible symposium and plant tour to explore additional programs from the surrounding Ann Arbor area and ASQ headquarters.  

We plan to introduce an incentive program for our members as a way to say thank you for your participation and continued years of service to the Ann Arbor Section and community.

Gift of Life Michigan is pleased to continue to offer our large conference center for the Section meetings at no cost.  In return we ask for your participation on the Section leadership team.  We have openings for members-at-large, as well as, an opening for Publicity Chair.  

I would like to acknowledge and thank the great group of leaders who support our Section and serve as a resource for our members and the community at large.  Thank you for your participation and support!

I am looking forward to an exciting year with ASQ Section, Ann Arbor.

Thank you,
Dr. Michael Hagan, MHSA, CMQ, CQA
