July 2018 Chair Message

Chair Message

By: Vinay Goyal

Time flies….we are entering the 7th month of the year. Happy Independence Day!!!


This year we have had two sold out seminars. Thanks to Ned Schneider, section Program Chair, Bob Mehta and Joe DeSimone, many volunteers and especially Thomas Bowles for offering Futek facility to host these events. Based on member survey responses, we have changed seminar days from weekdays to weekend and it turned out to be a win-win for our members, section and speakers.


We paid attention to our member’s feedback especially related to safety and moved our dinner meeting registration desks away from the stairs so no one accidently slips and/or falls when standing in line closer to the stairs or picking up something from the desk.


Some members experienced no section event notifications or RUs. As the short-term corrective action, we have removed opt out flag from 2300 members in our database. Some un-deliverable emails will be automatically opted out after unsuccessful delivery attempts. If a member does not want to receive any section event notifications can select opt out option or notify arrangement Chair. Caution: selecting opt out will prevent any further section event notifications. In the meantime, we have escalated the opt-out issue to event management software provider to investigate why some members were flagged as opted out, who do not recall that they had requested opt-out.


If our section is doing good for years, it did not happen overnight. I think this section was formed in 1960 and wherever we are today, is because of our past and current passionate member leaders, volunteers and most importantly members. To build a good community, it requires member’s collective participation in different capacities and positive synergy. Please note, none of the member leaders are paid members and collective dedicate over 2000 hours per year.


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
