About Section 1503

Huntsville, Alabama is located in a scenic area of the Tennessee valley. Business thrives in this city of technology. Huntsville has been recognized in national publications as a great place to live and work. ASQ Section 1503 supports the growing presence of nationally known companies and corporations in the space, biomedical, and defense businesses. Opportunities abound for the quality practitioner in this high tech environment.

The ASQ Section in Huntsville is involved in a number of activities and event occurring in the area. One of the more rewarding experiences is being connected with and serving the Huntsville Area Technical Societies, or HATS organization. Through HATS, ASQ is recognized as a supportor, and our Professional of the Year for ASQ in Huntsville is recognized at this organization level. Our section donates to Stedtran, which is a program by which area schools receive monies to purchase equipment and sponsor learning opportunities. Some of these are reviewed in the annual HATS recognition forum.

The section also participates in tours of some of the major companies and products supported in the area. Past events have included one of the premier auto dealerships in town, and the "rocket factory" over in Decatur, and an evening spent at a plasma etching center down in Cullman, Al. These experiences add to our understanding of the knowledge base and capabilities within our community.
