Hello Everyone!

Thank you for visiting our Columbia Basin ASQ Community.

As I'm writing this, it's June 28, and we are all continuing to follow the CDC, WHO and state guidelines, trying to keep ourselves and everyone around us as healthy and safe as possible.  Please continue to follow the guidelines.  We all need to do our part.  We are all in this together.

While it's unfortunate that we will not be able to hold our planned dinner meetings for a while or site visits/tours, we will continue to stay in touch with members through our monthly newsletters.  We will strive to provide information about online events, webinars, etc., to help members continue learning and growing.

For those of you who count on monthly meetings/events to earn RU credits for recertification, remember that credits can be earned in many ways.  Check out the free online webinars on ASQ's website as well as on other websites.  Check out the free monthly member gifts from ASQ as well.  Consider signing up for online professional development courses - for those who are not working full time right now, this may be a great time to take a course.  Read books - check out the ASQ's Team and Workplace Excellence Forum, as they recently started a Book Club for ASQ members.  It's a fun way to learn new things as well as networking/discussing with others.

We encourage members to participate in the virtual meetings offered by other sections in our Pacific Regional area, which includes Washington, Oregon, California, Alaska and Hawaii.  I attended a meeting with the San Gabriel section in May as well as two virtual meetings in June - one with San Gabriel and another meeting offered by the San Fernando Valley/Channel Cities sections.  All have been educational very well-presented.

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

Stay healthy.  Stay safe.  Stay positive.
