Membership Incentive

Posted by Thomas Petrocella on Feb 6, 2019 7:41 pm

I have an ask that has probably been asked before but I'll ask again.  How about when I renew my membership I get to select an ASQ published standard or book with my membership? That would be member value while increasing my own personal quality body of knowledge which goes right along with our mission statement.

I think this might be too costly to provide for each individual member who renews.  At a rate of 80% renewals of Regular (Full. Senior, Fellow) members, that commits ASQ to donating 40,000 copies of books or standards every year (assuming 40K of 50K Regular members renews their membership).

There is room for an additional member classification between the 25-30% who are Senior members, and the 1% who have attained Fellow Membership.  If the top 10% of Senior Members (approx. 3,000 members or 5% of total ASQ membership) were identified and nominated for such a classification (i.e. Associate Fellow, Distinguished Senior), a membership incentive like a $25 USD annual credit from Quality Press would be an effective recognition and reward for this distinguished tier of ASQ members. This could also be provided and enjoyed locally at the geographic or technical levels.  This could particularly reward unsung heroes within ASQ who toil behind the scenes as Treasurers and Secretaries, without publicity or glory.

I also would like to have a contingent of Associate Fellows as a future pipeline of potential Fellows and exemplary ASQ members.  This could be funded as a mix of ASQ membership campaign programs, member unit engagement endeavors, and Quality Press promotional discounts.

Daniel Zrymiak‍ I still like this idea. I agree that the gap between Senior and Fellow offers an Opportunity for Improvement in which another class may be just the ticket.

I seem to remember in years past that when I renewed "early" I got a Quality Press credit. I do not know if that is still the same.
