Last year’s efforts to continue to offer our members with continued conferences and events, required that we adopt new technologies and work processes. This year, we are continuing in that path and have begun changing a few things with the goal of bringing greater visibility and recognition to our section and to all quality professionals.

  • Our website was revamped and rejuvenated thanks to J.P. Amiel’s efforts and hard work,
  • Our newsletter format was also rejuvenated and aligned with the new website. For you, our readers, it should make it easier to read the articles that interest you. For us, it has drastically improved our process and time to publish,
  • ASQ’s myASQ site is also kept up to date in English and in French. We are the only section to have two distinct sites, so please make sure to follow us there,
  • We are also using LinkedIn to share our events and information of our section with both professionals and students. We highly encourage you to use these sites to post quality related articles and news, discussions and job opportunities,
  • For those that believe that 280 characters is enough to share an idea, our Twitter account will also be getting a bit more attention, and
  • As of this month, our event registrations will be done through Eventbrite where you can find us under “ASQ Montréal”. Make sure to follow us so that you see our upcoming events and please share our events with your network.

If you have any questions or comments about our new approaches, please reach out here!
