Nous avons ajusté le format de cet événement pour le rendre plus interactif.

Raymond Dyer, ASQ Senior, CMQ/OE, & CQA Responsable de programme de l’ASQ section de Montréal, animera des discussions basées sur le matériel développé à partir de conversations avec une ressource expérimentée et certifiée QMS Chef auditeur par l’IRCA (International Register of Certified Auditors), et de ses expériences personnelles sur la réalisation d’audits virtuels d’enregistrement. Cela sera ensuite suivi d’un partage d’expériences des auditeurs et des audités participants et de leurs perceptions sur les audits virtuels.

Attendance will be worth 0.5 RU (Recertification Units) for ASQ.

Happy New Year 2021

Jude Beck on unsplashYes, that’s right, we have given our Website a new look!!

We have updated our website originally written in HTML by Normand Dickinson, to one using WordPress, a free and open-source Content Management System (CMS) written in PHP. Norman’s site put us on the web and allowed us to keep you informed for over twenty years. In that span, website technology has greatly evolved and so we decided it was time to update.

ASQ meantime, also evolved its web platform and created myASQ for member communications. Also, I believe we are the only section that has two myASQ sites – one in English and one in French. We hope that you will visit them as well as we improve that presence as well.

So, on behalf of our Website Committee, I want to offer our best wishes for a ‘better’ and healthy 2021. May your wishes come true.

Website Committee Members: Chantale Simard, Guy Plouffe, Michael Bournazian, Veronica Marquez and Raymond Dyer.

When the CEO position became vacant in October 2019, the ASQ Board had an opportunity to re-envision how the leadership role could be better defined to guide the Society through its next phase of organizational and cultural growth. We are confident that we have found in Ann a partner dedicated to delivering heightened value for current and next-generation members, evolving our offerings to reflect digital transformation and other industry changes, and advancing the quality mission around the world.
