2018 January Chair Message

Happy New Year!!! I hope you have had a safe and pleasant 2017 and the holiday season.

Once again, I would like to recognize our leadership team as well as our membership for their contributions in making this section as one of the finest sections not only in the region (R7) nation, but in the world. It was not possible without our current as well as past members and member leaders.

I think I have had a very blessed life and I give credit to my father, Dr. J.K. Goyal, who I adore the most in my life as my mentor and Guru. One time when I was 11-12 years, he asked me how I could make a line shorter without touching it (erasing it). When I was unable to come up with a good answer, he told me, “draw a bigger line next to it”. It sounds like a silly and silly response, but if you look at that statement from a philosophical point of view, it means “do not waste time in diminishing others but improve yourself”. People will try to discourage you, pull you down, but instead of wasting your time in fighting them, continually improve yourself.

I was born and raised in India. I was 27 years old when I came to the US in 1985. I could read and write English but I hardly understood the language when watching the news and/or TV programs. English is still more or less my 2nd language, but with hard work and determination to do so something good in my life, today I am standing in front of you as the section chair. I think I worked very hard to earn this honor and will do everything in my capacity, knowledge and belief to serve this section the best that I can offer.

This is my short story. I would like to hear similar stories from you too and if the space and time would permit, would like to share with others. I would like to publish and share your accomplishments, both professional and personal, with our members so they can be inspired and learn from them.

Finally, this is not my section, this is OUR section. Please feel free to share your questions and concerns, with possible solutions, so we can make it the #1 section in the world.

At this point, I urge you to help in recruiting at least one member: student, associate member, full member, etc.

The more the merrier!!! The purpose of any society is to be inclusive. Please do not leave any stones unturned. If you need more information about membership and membership benefits, please feel free to discuss them with me or our section membership chair, Vatsal Patel, or anyone of our leadership members.

Best regards,

Vinay Goyal, ASQ Fellow, CSQP, CQA, CSSBB

Section Chair, ASQ Orange Empire 0701
