Hi Ray Lotfi, to clarify this decision was not made by staff at headquarters, rather it was made by the ASQ Board of Directors. The meeting minutes from the February Board Meeting haven’t been reviewed and approved yet, so you cannot view them yet. However, you can view the minutes from previous meetings where this has been voted on by the Board dating back to August of 2020. Prior to August, this was a decision that had been made by the Geographic Communities Council and Technical Communities Council.
I agree with you on Leadership Meetings if conditions are safe but I don't trust all states would comply with rules, in that case the ASQ members should opt out.
Are you advising that we should follow the guidance of the ASQ Board of Director?
What happens when there is a conflict between the Board and our Local Centre for Disease Control?
Our section has been taking advantage of the flexibility of being able to meet across a large geographic area at lunchtime over Teams, which has been very helpful for our leadership meetings.
Again IS IT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ASQ-MILAUKEE TO DICTATE SECTION LEADERSHIP MEETINGS? In my humble opinion ASQ-Milwaukee should clearly call (NO) and not INSLUT sections. Thank you
