The Illiana Section of ASQ, Section 1213, held their annual quality conference on February 1st. This conference had speakers from the Six Sigma Forum and the Statistics Division along with local speakers, exemplifying the collaborative synergy that is possible between divisions and sections. Staff from ASQ HQ were also involved sharing elements of the transformation journey with attendees. While it was cold outside, inside there was plenty of lively conversation about quality tools. The 200+ members of 1213 and those sections around Chicago look forward to spending a wintery Friday listening to quality practitioners and learning about the latest happenings at Headquarters. With a registration fee of only $40 for the event, this conference continues to be one of the best bargains around.
