    Keeping in mind that some 15 years ago we were an organization of 136,000. Now worldwide - 52456
    That is roughly 38% of what the membership base was at its high point…. What are the reasons for this decrease in membership – changes in vision, mission, leadership, fragmenting of the quality environment, changes in the role quality/Quality plays in organizations today, or are large organizations creating there own quality systems independent of ASQ (how many companies have created their own belt systems for lean six sigma and other quality programs).

    The monthly retention report is available in the following formats: Excel and PDF.

    Take care,

    William A. Eastham, Jr., Ph.D., CQA, PMP
