We have added two new benefits to our division Web site that enhance its value to members and provide a good reason for nonmembers to join ASQ and the division. The new Technical Directories page allows division members to advertise their skills and expertise for free during the entire administrative year, July 1 through June 30. Members may enter data by way of a convenient form that is provided on the opening page. The request goes through the division membership chair for confirmation, then to the Webmaster for posting. Entries may be submitted at any time. All will be posted until June 30, when after a brief grace period, they will be withdrawn unless renewed. Each entry includes a line for the member’s Web site URL, which will provide a "hot link" directly to the site.
Sustaining members may also post advertisements. Individual members should restrict the data in their entry to themselves as individuals, and sustaining members should address their corporate skills and expertise.
Nonmembers may also post advertisements for a fee of $25 for three months. Those who might like to post an advertisement for an extended period would probably find it beneficial to join ASQ and the division and obtain this listing without additional cost. When making an entry, nonmembers receive instructions to contact the division treasurer and make arrangements for payment for the period of listing desired. The treasurer confirms payment before the Webmaster posts the listing.
The new Employment Post page provides a forum for members to exchange employment information. Options include individuals seeking employment and corporations seeking employees. Members may post listings in either area for free. Again, requests are routed through the membership secretary for confirmation and then sent to the Webmaster for posting. Employment Post listings are routinely posted for 90 days but may be extended for any length of time during the current administrative year.
Nonmembers may submit Employment Post listings for a fee of $25 for three months. And again, they will receive instructions to contact the treasurer regarding payment.
These new benefits are just the latest in what your division can do for you. We have recently registered our Web site with a Number of the major Internet search engines, making our site accessible to the global community. Take advantage of these unique benefits. Tell others, and encourage them to join us!
