September 2018 Chair Message

Chair Message

By: Vinay Goyal

Time flies….we have entered the 9th month of the year.





Some of the Key Highlights:

  • There are several upcoming ASQ and non-ASQ (e.g. Device Alliance, OCRA and Product Stewards Society) events. Please see inside for more details. We are promoting other section and professional society’s events as a part of member value.
  • On Saturday August 18th, 32 ASQ Region 7 section leaders participated at leadership meeting. Our section was represented by the following leaders: Dave Nagy, Ed Matthews, Mark Lindsey, Ned Schneider, Bob Mehta, Suni Dungan, Kevin Dan, Monica Daneshrad and myself.
    • It was a great event organized by C. G. Mistry, ASQ Region 7 Director. The theme was on how to increase collaboration among all R7 ASQ sections.
    • Four Deputy Regional Directors from our section and I chaired various sessions related to Education, Program, Training, Awards and Member Value.
  • Janice Loy and Ed Smith have informed us that they are unable to continue as volunteers, due to some personal reasons. On behalf of section leaders and members, I would like to acknowledge and thank them for their services. Their responsibilities will be assumed by Thane Azifu (newly appointed VOC Chair) and other new volunteers.
  • I have appointed Swaroop Sawant, as assistant treasurer to assist Cory Goral until the end of 2018.
  • Nomination Chair will reach out to paid section members and enquire whether they are interested in any of the 2019 open leadership positions. If interested, please contact Dave Nagy.
  • Vice Chair – Abel Cortez is heading section scholarship team. Section is offering two scholarships of $1000 and $500 (see details on page 9). Interested candidates please fill out Gene Underwood Scholarship application.


As always, I would like to seek your help in recruiting at least one new member: student, associate member, full member, etc.


Look forward to seeing you at section events.


Best regards,


Vinay Goyal, ASQ Fellow, CSQP, CQA, CSSBB

Section Chair, ASQ Orange Empire 0701
