Hello Everyone!

Thank you for visiting our Columbia Basin ASQ Community!

Our March 10 dinner meeting was very interesting and educational.  The speaker, Lynn Carlson, shared information on the topic “What Makes an Effective Team?  9 Measurable Characteristics and How to Grow Them.”

As I’m writing this message, the World Health Organization recently declared the Coronavirus/COVID-19 as pandemic and many precautions are being taken throughout the United States and globally in an effort to stem the spread and to protect everyone. 

ASQ has announced cancellation of the World Conference on Quality & Improvement (WCQI) in May.  In Washington State, schools have been closed until at least the end of April, and additional restrictions have been placed on public events and gatherings.

We had another great dinner meeting planned for April – but that has now been cancelled along our planned May meeting.  We care about our members and our communities and for the safety and best interests of everyone.

We will continue to monitor the situation.

As we plan future meetings and site visits for the remainder of the year, we want to hear from our members.  What topics are you most interested in?  Do you know of some good, local speakers that we might invite to present at one of our meetings?  Ideas for site visits/tours?  We welcome your input!  We also welcome volunteers – please contact me if you would like to become more actively involved in our section activities.

Keep checking back here – and on our other website – for news of future Columbia Basin ASQ events and activities.
