Member Leader Events

The events below are primarily intended for member leaders from communities governed by the Global Advisory Committee (GAC), Section Affairs Council (SAC), Technical Communities Council (TCC), or in cooperation with ASQ Community Development or ASQ Global. These include divisions, sections, local member communities, country counselors, and communities sponsored by these groups, as well as forums and networks.

The events are complimentary and do not require conference attendance. Registration is required and some events are for member leaders from the specified groups only. If attending the conference, a separate conference registration is also required.

Please note: Up to 2 member leaders from each member unit who attend the Community Leadership Institute may be eligible for the member leader conference rate. Chairs have been contacted with instructions.

Advance registration for the Saturday/Sunday Member Leader Events is now closed. You can still attend this weekend event for Member Leaders by simply stopping at the registration area onsite & the registration staff will ensure you get registered for the Saturday/Sunday Events (not World Conference as that is separate registration). Member Leader event registration (not World Conference registration) is open at 7 a.m. on Saturday & Sunday.

All events are held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center
