The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center: Ranger Outing Event is in-person only. There will be no virtual option for this event.

Short Description:

The February 2023 ASQ Section Meeting is a Ranger Outing Event (as was announced at previous ASQ Section Meetings).

The event is based on the tours and facilities offered by the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, which was created as Chantilly, VA branch of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and opened its doors on December 15th 2003, turning 19 years old just weeks before this Ranger Outing.

ASQ has removed its former restrictions on in-person events except for the expectation that participants will follow local guidance.
