Greetings Enterprise Members!

As you know, ASQExcellence is poised to bring new value and benefits to our Organizational Members. You are invited to the first annual Excellence Roundtable Event (ERT) on November 10th in conjunction with World Quality Month. This event will be held in two parts, providing you the opportunity to meet the ASQE leadership and network with your fellow members in a virtual way. Per your feedback, we are excited to make significant changes to this year’s Roundtable Event programming, which features exciting announcements around new membership benefits and products, such as the Insights on Excellence (IoE) benchmarking tool.

Part 1 of our 2020 ERT Event features a preview of the new ASQE Organizational Member benefits (available in 2021), as well as the launch of our research partnership with Forbes Insights. Later that afternoon, Part 2 provides active roundtable discussions on topics drawn from the Insights on Excellence (IoE) research, led by FOCUS Training – an interactive leadership development company. We hope that your schedule allows you to join us for both Parts of our agenda.

This unique member event will be hosted in Webex Training, as a networking and breakout meeting platform reserved exclusively for ASQE Organizational Members. This innovative environment will allow you enjoy the presentations, keynote, as well as facilitated discussions in smaller groups.

We look forward to hosting you, and officially launching our new ASQE Organizational Membership experience!
