Conference Theme: Aspire to Inspire, Influence, and Engage Others by
Improving Your Personal Skills Toolbox
Soft skills are increasingly becoming the hard skills of today’s professional workforce. It’s just not
enough to be highly trained in technical skills, without developing the softer, interpersonal, and
relationship-building skills that help people to communicate and collaborate more effectively.
These people skills are more critical than ever as organizations struggle to find meaningful ways to
remain competitive and increase productivity. Teamwork, leadership, and communication are
underpinned by soft skills development. Since each is an essential element for organizational and
personal success, developing these skills is very important and does matter… a lot!
Join us online in April 2018 as we offer our first virtual conference. Our theme, Aspire to Inspire,
Influence, and Engage Others by Improving Your Personal Skills Toolbox, is an effort to help highlight
the need for soft skills development among Quality and other professionals. This conference was
designed to accommodate participants of all learning levels. Our goal is to provide a jam-packed
morning of valuable knowledge and plenty of takeaways that can be readily applied in any work setting.

Greetings Quality Professionals.

We are excited to have a great year discussing, presenting, and sharing quality topics. The topics for the membership meetings for February and March have been decided.

However, we are in need of some assistance from you all. We would like to know what interests you all might have. We are seeking representatives from all fields (e.g. manufacturing, healthcare, and education).

Help us spread our love for quality to all aspects of our lives.

Hello Fellow ASQ Certified Professionals,

In case we have not yet met at a recent ASQ function, please let me introduce myself. My name is Ron Gryniewicz, and I am the new Education Chair for ASQ-Tucson Chapter. ASQ-Tucson has not had an Education Chair or a schedule of educational courses for some time; the ASQ-Tucson Board and I would like to change that fact. However, before we can offer classes, we need to fill our “bullpen” with capable instructors.

If you are interested in joining ASQ Tucson’s team of instructors, please complete the Instructor Application and submit it to me. In addition, please provide a summary of your credentials or experience in teaching, presenting seminars/workshops, and other similar information.

Do feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns that you may have.

Ron Gryniewicz
ASQ-Tucson Education Chair
