Happy New Year!!  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.  Ours was filled with "classic" Christmas movies (Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, etc.) and many homemade cookies - it was excellent!

With the new year we also have a new section leadership team.  I’d like to extend my sincere gratitude to each of the leadership team members for volunteering to serve in 2021 and to the outgoing team for all of their efforts over the past year and graciously bringing us up to speed.

While the mandatory leadership positions have been filled for the year, there are still numerous opportunities to contribute to the local section.  The positions that are currently open include: Programs Chair, Voice of the Customer Chair, Education Chair, Social Media Chair, and Newsletter Editor.  The monthly section newsletter has become more critical than ever, with it now being our primary method of communication within the section.  Robert Boykin has dutifully served in this capacity for many years and is ready to pass the torch.  Please reach out if you have interest in any of the remaining open section positions or would like to assist in a more informal role.  Our section is operated entirely by our volunteer members and we need your help to continue offering a local ASQ experience well into the future.

In-person meetings will, unfortunately, continue to be postponed until at least mid-year with the state of the COVID-19 pandemic.  We may try offering our own virtual presentations this year as a change of pace.  More to come on this in the near future.  As always, if you have any general comments, suggestions or items you would like to see offered within our section, please let the leadership team know!  Our goal is to make section membership an engaging and rewarding experience for all members.  Hearing from each of you is essential to achieving that mission.

Best Regards!
