By-Laws

 

The Northeastern Illinois Section, as well as all other Sections, adopted the Section Operating Agreement (SOA) which is approved by the ASQ Board of Directors as our governing document.  The current version was adopted in 2013.  ASQ Policy S 02.00, Section Maintenance, is the primary document describing how our Section is organized and governed.

These documents focus on the minimum expectations the Society has for Sections, while leaving us the flexibility to determine our own policies and procedures locally – provided they are not in conflict with Society Bylaws, Society Policies and Procedures and the Section Operating Agreement.  With the SOA there is less emphasis on required positions and roles, but greater emphasis on the activities of Sections that produce or contribute to member value.  These include communication, leadership and membership meetings, and professional development events/activities.

Our Section Leadership Committee has developed a policy and procedure system to supplement the SOA and describe our local principles and practices.  The ASQ governing documents, Society Bylaws and Society Policies and Procedures, are available at www.asq.org.  Our governing documents are open to all who wish to read them.

You may view the SOA, ASQ Policy S 02.00, and Section Policies by hovering your cursor over “Bylaws” in the site menu above and selecting in the sub-menu.

If there are any questions or comments, please contact me.
