As Quality Professional myself, I am so pleased with reading the history of ASQ for the past 70 years. All the great minds and most influential voice in Quality started in this organization. From certifications to promotion of knowledge and practices, ASQ over the years proved to have solid influence to where the practice of Quality is right now. More power to ASQ and cheers to better years to come!

I started being a member of ASQ since 2014... I am very much focus on reading all their quality articles up to the time I decided to take a self review on Quality Technician and be certified, but unluckily I FAILED... from here I started to loose hope... and never want to open the ASQ Web anymore... but then...I reversed my psychology from loosing hope to study more harder... I know for sure that ASQ will sure help me a lot in pursuing my goal to one of the Quality Lovers. More Power ASQ and happy 70th Anniversary.
