Notes on the Event:

In-Person Meetings: ASQ has removed its former restrictions on in-person events except for the expectation that participants will follow local guidance.

  • The Kings Park Library website does not note any mask or vaccination requirements.
    • However, we did have occasions in the past where we were told that masks would not be required yet the location required a mask.
    • Thus, perhaps plan on having a mask in your pocket just in case. We will follow the guidance of our meeting site at the time of the meeting.
  • ASQ does not require signing waivers, so, you will not be asked to sign one, either.
  • Thus, by participating, you have agreed that this is acceptable to you.

Recording and Streaming: The meeting’s program will be streamed and recorded. No effort will be made to record you specifically unless you speak up nor to avoid recording your voice or likeness. Thus, by participating in the meeting in person, you have agreed that this is acceptable to you.

On-site Location: The on-site meeting will be conducted at the following location: Kings Park Library: 9000 Burke Lake Rd., Burke, VA 22015.

  • This should be a relatively short drive for many Section 0511 Quality Professionals.
