QualitySpecial Interest Group
We are currently building a Launch Team for the Quality SIG. The Quality SIG will be a group of people interested in applying and reaping the benefits of a quality program within their companies. Benefits include process improvements, product enhancement, cost savings, and increased customer satisfaction.
Team members will come from a variety of experiences and backgrounds. Some will not have a quality program that currently exists, others will have an “applied” quality program, while others will be certified in the quality system required by their industry. These programs will be at all levels, so you do not have to be an expert to join.
One of our first tasks is to build a key quality contact list for all CMMA companies. Help us by sending the name and contact information of the key contact for your company.
If you’re interested in being a member of the “Launch Team” or if you have contact information for your company, please contact Brian Sheets at firstname.lastname@example.org.
