Eduardo Vega

ASQ Greater Houston Section Chair

This year our regional conference is turning into a national one thanks to a joint effort with the ASQ Inspection Division. Houston is the 4th largest city in the country; you will have the opportunity to network with quality professionals from the most diverse industries such as healthcare, energy, manufacturing, etc. Quality professionals will share how the quality tools are now part of the digital world. Join us!

Carl Drechsel

ASQ Inspection Division Chair

All organizations depend on quality to control processes and judge performance. Information collected by quality professionals provides critical controls on key processes. Turning data into action benefits the organizations that can leverage these data management tools. A major consideration in quality improvement involves comparing “Quality Then and Now.” The 2022 Joint ASQ Inspection Division & Greater Houston Section Conference in Houston, TX on September 29 & 30, 2022 provides the necessary skills and knowledge to leverage these critical tools.
