SUMMER 2015 Update
We hope you were able to attend out May presentation on Risk Based Decision Making. Jim Rooney did an excellent job outlining things and laying out the basics. As part of the Question and Answer session after the presentation Jim mentioned the US Coast Guard web site as one source of additional information. One of our long term members, Bill Mize, did some digging and found the following link www.uscg.mil/hq/cg5/cg5211/risk.asp for the Risk-Based Decision making guide. Check it out.
Our special Summer workshop on “An Introduction to ISO 9001:2015" was very successful. This workshop covered important changes, interpretations, and transaction implications of the standard update. Don Brecken lead the workshop. Don has said that he may be able to do an encore presentation in either late Septermber or October. Let us know if you are interested.
There is still time to sign up for summer refresher courses. Please look at our events page for further information and to sign up.
Although this is the summer vacation season, your Section Leadership Committee has been busy planning for the next year. Stay tuned for further information.
We hope you are having a wonderful summer. Stay safe. We will see you in September.
