Message From the Chair - March 2023

“Time waste differs from material waste in that there can be no salvage. The easiest of all wastes and the hardest to correct is the waste of time, because wasted time does not litter the floor like wasted material.” - Henry Ford

Hello ASQ Section 1001 Members & Guests!

There is a good feeling in the air, thank you to all the ASQ Section 1001 Members who are ENGAGED! We have had some awesome presenters this year, challenging participants to improve both personally and professionally.

The March event is even easier to become ENGAGED, it’s all virtual. Stay home in your favorite place and join us, invite a friend! The Zoom meeting starts at 5:30 with the first half hour set aside for the Networking Cafe, then regular programming with a tutorial and main speaker! Come and engage in another high-quality presentation on Modular Kaizen by Grace Duffy.

Don’t forget, April is a plant tour of Ferris Coffee & Nuts, you won’t want to miss this event! This will be our first plant tour since the pandemic.

The SLC strives to provide the section with relevant member value, while keeping the Grand Rapids Section viable, healthy and thriving for years to come. Join us as we pursue Knowledge – Networking – Opportunities with the quality professionals of West Michigan.

Thank you for supporting the Grand Rapids Section!

Chad Wittkopp,

Chair Grand Rapids Section 1001
