Greetings fellow Mansfield ASQ members,


Well, the holidays are over and it is back to work for most of us. Our December Social event was cancelled. But we are up and running for January. Another evening of great food, fine fellowship, & lively quality discussion. Give Caryn a call or email so we can get an accurate # for dinner planning purposes. Come on out. We haven?t seen you since last year.

Please note one local quality engineering position listed in section 7 below. If you are aware of any other local quality positions, please shoot me an email and I?ll share it with our other Mansfield Section 811 members.

Stay warm, stay out of the ditch, and I hope to see you next Thursday at the January meeting.

Best regards,
Joe Hildebrand
