ASQ 0511 - Volunteer Opportunities


Current Volunteer Opportunities Include
  • If your interested in serving on our Section Board (or what ASQ calls the Section Leadership Committee - SLC) to fill the below positions, please complete the volunteer form to let us know
    • Committee Chairs - position descriptions for each committee chair except the Special Interest Group (SIG) chairs are available.
      • Newsletter Chair
      • Placements Chair
      • Publicity Chair
      • Recertification Chair
      • Treasurer-Elect
        • The position of Treasurer-Elect works directly with the Treasurer in the processing of payments at membership meetings and the handling of our section's finances. The position also serves on the section's board and earns recertification credits.
        • The Treasurer-Elect should be able to attend most section meetings to provide support to, or spell, the Treasurer.
      • Volunteer Opportunities Chair
      • SIG Co-Chairs
        • Both the SIG Co-chairs work closely with our across the river section, 0509, which covers the District of Columbia and suburban Maryland. The SIGs cover the metropolitan region and usually sponsor joint meetings and activities, with the events alternating locations. The co-chairs work with their counterparts in arranging speakers, meetings and other events in support of the SIGs' specialities.
        • Lean Six Sigma SIG Co-Chair
        • Vice-Chair and/or Program Coordinator of the Software SIG Committee
          • T. Scott Ankrum, the Section 509 SW SIG Chair, reports that the turnover of committee volunteers over the years has been so high that recruiting, training and managing volunteers has been almost as much work for him as when he did everything himself. As he cannot sustain this level of effort, if he gets volunteers to fill the roles of Program Coordinator and Vice-Chair, with a commitment to stay on for more than a few months, then the Software SIG can continue. These positions can be filled by two different people.
          • The Program Coordinator identifies prospective speakers for the SIG and puts them in contact with the Announcement Editor. The work for this position can be performed a couple of hours each month, or it can be performed in bursts by identifying speakers for several months at a time. Prospective speakers can be identified by browsing technical journals and conference agendas, looking for authors who are local to our area. Networking among your colleagues is another way to identify speakers. The Vice-Chair will learn to prepare for each meeting and manage the committee. This person would also be his backup at Software SIG meetings and for ASQ Section Executive Board meetings.

      Additional volunteer opportunities will be posted as they arrive.
