January 2024 Chair’s Message Greetings Valued ASQ Phoenix Section Members – Happy New Year; we made it to 2024! I hope that the holidays were safe and festive for you and that ringing in the new year felt like a breath of fresh air. I celebrated it cozy at home and fell asleep to my favorite shows on Netflix well before midnight (Top Chef is currently in my top five). New Year’s Day, I woke up ready to tackle the goals and resolutions I set for myself for the year ahead. What about you? Did you stay up late enough to watch the ball drop in New York City?

December 2023 Chair’s Message Greetings Valued ASQ Phoenix Section Members – The holidays are upon us! I hope each of you had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving with your families.
