ASQ Canada Conference 2022 Theme is Announced!

Facing adversity is a part of life. It’s not desirable, it’s not what we ask for, but it is what we have to experience from time to time due to an array of internal and external factors. What makes a difference is how we start recognizing these factors as resolvable issues, what lessons we learn from them, and, most importantly, how we move forward to pursue the best opportunities that lie ahead.

Overcoming Adversity: A Leap Forward is the theme of the upcoming ASQ Canada National Conference, the biggest event yet hosted by ASQ Vancouver. While the date of the conference and the details of our prime venue are to be communicated soon, we invite you to stay tuned and plan to join us for this blended annual conference on Quality and Business Excellence.
