Chairs Message

First of all, I want to welcome all of our new QMD members for 2017 and to congratulate you for joining the most diverse and active division in ASQ. We have a very strong leadership team that possesses many excellent capabilities and truly the finest group of quality skills we could wish for. I would be very pleased to hear from you if you are interested in joining our leadership team as a volunteer. We would also be very interested to hear from you with regard to your expectations from our division. This would be of great benefit to us.

I recently saw a program on NOVA called Superstructures, which covered the building of the One World Tower in place of the twin towers in New York City. This is an excellent program with regard to demonstrating the use of lessons learned, and I would recommend it as also the program called Supertunnel, which covers the building of the new cross rail under London, England. Lasers were attached to buildings and museums and controls were set up so that the builders could see whether the drilling under the city was having any affect on the old buildings.

So once again, welcome—and we look forward to hearing from you with regard to any assistance you may need or any thoughts you may have as to how we could improve the QMD.

My best to you all.

Jan Tucker, Chair
American Society for Quality—Quality Management Division
