Message from the Chair – September 2021

“So glad you’re back! We missed you!”

Welcome Back!!

I am very excited to begin what promises to be a memorable 2021-2022 Program Year. The program year kicks off with the Member Appreciation Event, a night at the Whitecaps!! This isn’t our normal monthly meeting; it is simply a fun event to say thank you for being a part of our section. This is a family friendly event, with baseball, food, games and fireworks, so feel free to invite your family. This also is a great opportunity to reach out to other quality professionals and invite them to the game.

The traditional monthly meetings resume in October, with the ever-popular Mark Rusco speaking on “Updates to the AIAG/VDA FMEA Manual.” We are fortunate to have three ASQ Fellows giving presentations this program year; Jd Marhevko, Kathy Lyall, and Paul Prunty will be sharing their quality expertise with us. Back by popular demand, Lauren Torres from Bell’s Brewery. Lauren will be discussing “Hop Creep Potential in Packaged Beer” at the February 2022 meeting, an event you won’t want to miss!!

You will receive a post card in mail providing details of the entire 2021-2022 Program Year and I look forward to seeing you at the meetings. If you have any ideas for future meetings or section events, please contact any member of the Section Leadership Committee (SLC) to find out how you can help provide Knowledge – Networking – Opportunities to quality professionals in West Michigan.

Thank you for your continued membership in ASQ!

Ken Phillips,

Chair Grand Rapids Section 1001
