Why Participate in the Grand Rapids Section? Increased member value through...
Many things happened 60 years ago:
And one other thing happened that affected your life …
One year ago, when the Section Leadership Committee (aka the SLC) was planning the program for this year. We were trying to get a good mix of activities, topics and speakers. As we were doing this someone mentioned that most general members do not know what goes on behind the scenes, and what it takes to keep things going. Rick Evans suggested “Why not review with our members what happens on the inside? It would be logical to do this as part of our 60th Anniversary year”. After Rick came up with the topic the rest of the SLC had to do the hard work of finding someone to do this. It did not take long.
Rick is well known member of our section, and has spoken several times before, usually involving the topic of “certifications” (Rick is ASQ certified in more quality areas than anyone else in the West Michigan). Rick is known for his straight forward speaking style, and his “Calvin & Hobbs” sense of humor.
What is going to happen when he takes to the podium again? What is he going to say? We don’t know. We can only tell you that you do not want to miss it.
