Message From the ASQ 1302 Chair

During the more than 14 years that I have been a member of Nebraska Section 1302, I am privileged to be associated with many hard-working, dedicated members. Their commitment and helpful efforts have led to the current status of the organization. We have 350+ members and growing each year.

During this time, the dedicated board members accomplished long-range planning, strategic planning, and tactical planning. As a result of these plans, the membership took part in informative training sessions, many plant tours, and many opportunities to network with leadership and quality managers in area companies. Much was accomplished, yet much remains to be done.

Significant progress has been made toward further demonstrating the broad applications of quality thinking, Lean thinking, data and process tools. The section is instrumental in fostering continuing education on college campuses through its scholarship program.

Section 1302 has established our presence on the Internet with an informative webpage that shares section activities and also provides a platform for employment opportunities. These activities need your support, so, more volunteers are needed to help with the valuable programs of the section. If you are interested in getting involved in 1302, please review the Volunteers Needed section of the website and contact the appropriate person for the job that best fits your interests and talents. Even if you don’t see a particular job listed and you want to get involved in section activities, please contact one of the officers. We have many areas where we have need for help.

I would like to thank Eddy Sander for his leadership as Chair this past year and for his many contributions. We expect him to remain very involved with Nebraska 1302 for many years to come, as have most of our past officers. There are many others who have made very significant contributions. The significant accomplishments for the section are seldom solely due to one person. Fortunately, the Nebraska 1302 is blessed with many members who are very interested in creating greater value for our membership. I simply say “Thank you” to each of you who have in any way assisted the furthering of the Section’s vision and mission.

Robert Anderson-Ludrick, Chair, Nebraska -1302
