It is December, and we will be celebrating the holidays, and our December section meeting pays homage to the holiday tradition with our annual “White Elephant” gift exchange, where we share something to re-gift. This is a reminder of how fortunate we are to have enough to share with others.
Also part of our Quality Celebration is a focus on those less fortunate. Our December program includes a focus on charitable organizations. We encourage you to show your support for these organizations, which, like ASQ are not-for-profit, but who focus on a different type of impact.
Lastly, thank you for your support to make my experience as section Chair in 2016 a memorable period in my life. It has been a pleasure to serve Section 1212, and I have learned so much over the past year. I know that I held this office imperfectly, so I thank you for your understanding. I am also grateful for the very capable and charming Jeff Wright, who will succeed me in January. Please welcome him with as much support as you showed me!
