MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN

Our thanks to Bob Huebner of Z-Medica and to our Vice Chair Joe Azary for setting up the event last month. We had a great turn out, and learned about an amazing lifesaving product from a gentleman who is very passionate about it and about the company's mission.

This month we're hooking up with the ASQ New Haven section as well as APICS New Haven on a visit to the Connecticut Food Bank in Wallingford. We hope you can join us.

Regards,

Ron DeRosa
