I want to start oﬀ by saying thank you to all the attendees at our 2015 Quality Day Conference. It was the largest and best yet. We organize this signature event every other year. We had 186 attendees with 3 people coming all the way from Tucson, AZ. Our visitors from AZ commented that our Quality Day Event was well worth the trip. We were very fortunate to have a highly talented and professional lineup of Quality Day presenters with great topics. Quality Day 2015 was another huge opportunity for many of our members to learn, network and have fun. I want to give a special thanks to the ASQ Section 0701 Leadership Team, volunteers and our very talented presenters for their significant selfless contributions to our 2015 Quality Day Event.
Now we are preparing for another traditional event that we organize every second Tuesday of December: Casino Night! Sounds fun, right? Are you ready for a fun family evening? Bring your entire family for a fun evening of games of chance. There will be seven gaming tables, featuring blackjack, roulette, Texas Hold ‘em, poker, craps, and other pit games. 3 fun-filled hours of unlimited gaming. No money is needed for this event, we will fund you.
Casino Night will start oﬀ with a clinic on the statistics and probability of gaming presented by Dr. Jack B. ReVelle, for which you will receive 0.6 RU credits towards recertification. To receive the RU certificate you must attend this clinic. RU certificates will not be available for those who do not attend the clinic. International buﬀet featuring Mexican, Chinese, and Italian cuisines will be available throughout most of the evening.
I would like to introduce our new Financial Auditing Committee Chair, Thomas Neal.
