ASQC 0511 Board Minutes 3 Apr 97 Attendees: Harvey Shaw, Chair Bill Eastham, Chair Elect Dallas Frederick, Historian Mark Jones, CQC Gail Symons, Secretary Walt Mendus, Programs Catherine Brooks, Professional Liaison David Kae, Education Pat McMahon, Publicity Roger Schaffer, Examinations Linda Lassiter, ISO Bill Casti, E-media Reading of Minutes: Minutes of 4 March 1997 Executive Board meeting were read and approved. Treasurer's Report: The report for this month will be included in next month's report Committee Reports: a) Program: Catherine Brooks will be the presenter for the April meeting on Quality to the Bottom Line: Open Book Management. In July, the presenter will be someone from the Montgomery county public schools b) Publicity: She is writing a news release on involvement of SPQA and the activity at AQP. The cost of adding mailboxes so that chairs can place announcements would raise the cost from $15/month to $50/month. Could put a separate directory on the web to provde the information. This would be an effective way to communicate what is going on in the committee. It was decided that only the chair, education and membership will have their names and phone numbers announced on the hotline plus one event for the month. This would normally be the dinner and speaker. Chairs can e-mail the information for the Web to Bill Casti. This can include upcoming events and a calendar. The chairs should include dates and other pertinent information. c) Professional Liaison: The Baltimore Washington Quality Partnership will be jointly paying for a booth at the AQP conference. We are offering the use of our display. She will contact Phil Landesburg and recommend that if they use the display, we do not pay $50 and if the do not use the display, we will pay the $50. d) Historian: Nothing new. e) Examining: March exams went well. The majority were for software engineer, around 18 to 20. There were 2 for CRE, none for CMI, none for CQT. f) E-media: No statistics. The white paper expected to be done the weekend of 5-6 April. g) Education: Three workshops have been held with over 20 participants in the Team Dynamics. The Measuring Organizational Performance (MOP) workshop had seven people. The study group for MOP is scheduled for the week of 7 April. CAQ certification is going on currently. CSQE and CQM will begin July courses. h) Community Quality Council: He drafted and had Harvey sign a letter to the board chair for the Senate Productivity & Quality Award asking if we can adopt their process. This was sent out on 18 March with no response yet. We have offered to publicize their award program. The booth space will be complementary for sending out flyers for SPQA. Harvey passed on congratulations to Katherine, Pat, Dave and Mark for their work. i) ISO 9000: The next meeting will be on 13 May. Old Business: a) The planning for the National Quality Month should start right now. The down link will be on 9 October from 11:30 to 1:45. Will explore the possibility of a down link with PRC. The timing is good for the award process. Maybe we can involve the Fairfax County Chamber. b) The board approved the new cost of $5767.85 to cover the cost of the static display. It is recommended the display be covered by insurance; probably through ASQC. Bill Eastham will explore that possibility. Pat McMahon will look into proposals for renting the display to offset the cost. Catherine Brooks has offered to house the display. c) The educational scholarships have lots of possibilities with no resolution. The Education committee will propose recipients at the next board meeting New Business: a) The new Region Five Director, Sal Sciccitani, will be very active. He has already called each chair in his region and has asked the current chair of Section 0511 to be his deputy regional director. b) Henry Kling will collect board recommendations on for people to be recognized at the June dinner meeting. The meeting will be a combined business meeting and recognition of accomplishment for the year. c) Harvey is to find out if Inchcape will be penalized in any way if we do not meet every month at their facility. If not, we will continue to rotate locations for the convenience of many board members. Meeting close: Motion to adjourn seconded and approved. The next meeting will be on 1 May at Inchcape.
