Welcome to the ASQ Middle Tennessee
Section 1118 website!

We are excited to provide this website as a valuable resource to not only our members, but also to the community at large. 

We also have a LinkedIn Group (click on the logo above); participation is encouraged, but not a requirement to be a member of Section 1118.

We will be using the website email system to provide The Paradigm newsletter to you each month.  Thank you for continuing to accept email from ASQ in order to help us greatly reduce mailing costs and to be a more environmentally-friendly organization.

Please visit www.asq.org for complete information about the
American Society for Quality or to update your profile to accept email or add an email address.

We plan to continue to deliver interesting, informative, and useful topics as a service to our membership.  In order to do so, your suggestions for topics and/or speakers would be very helpful.  Please contact the Programs Chair at Programs@ASQ-MiddleTN.org with your valued input.  Keep in mind that your suggestions may not be able to be implemented until the following year since the plan for this year may be completed.
