Develop and Manage Your Career - whether you are searching for a new job, become unemployed through downsizing, or decide to retire, ASQ is with you for the life of your career.

Well established programs such as dues relief (unemployment) and dues reduction (retirement), are also available at no additional charge but you must continue to maintain your membership to be eligible. Think of it as insurance for the lifetime of your career!

 

Get specialized information - ASQ is your information source for quality improvement tools and techniques. Make sure you continue to build on your fund of knowledge and area of expertise by taking advantage of up-to-date information through Quality Progress magazine, industry-specific information through our Divisions, and Quality Information Center (QIC) resources. The ability to respond effectively to change by staying well informed is an important and acquired skill for your future.

 

Develop high impact skills - to be a leader in today's workplace you must continue to expand skills such as problem-solving, teaming, benchmarking, and strategic planning. ASQ's courses, conferences, and seminars address those needs and provide you with opportunities to learn from business experts. This is information you can take back to your organization and use immediately!

 

Strengthen Your Community Interaction - in today's busy world its easy to feel disconnected from the latest events. Involvement in Section and Division activities provide you with opportunities to build your leadership skills while making a contribution to keep the Society strong and vital in the communities we serve. No time to go to meetings? Stay in touch at ASQNet, the internet community for members of the society. Its easy to maintain that important link with colleagues worldwide by sharing experiences and offering suggestions in forums.

 

Recognition through Advancement - as you accrue years in the Society, ASQ offers several ways to upgrade your membership status. You can apply to be a Senior member and can be nominated to Fellow. Achievement of these membership grades shows other members as well as your professional colleagues that you are a committed and active participant in the Society.

Sustain Quality Improvement Research - as a continuing member you help provide the resources ASQ needs to engage in leading-edge quality improvement research. Through support of multidisciplinary programs such as Innovation and Organizational Change (IOC), ASQ is able to pursue important research that can be applied to any organization using quality.
