The American Society for Quality (ASQ), www.asq.org, headquartered in Milwaukee, was formed Feb. 16, 1946. The purpose of the 104,000-member professional association is to create better workplaces and communities worldwide by advancing learning, quality improvement, and knowledge exchange to improve business results. ASQ makes its officers and member experts available to inform and advise Congress, government agencies, state legislatures, and other groups and individuals on quality-related topics. ASQ representatives have provided testimony on issues such as training, health care quality, education, transportation safety, quality management in the federal government, licensing for quality professionals, and more.
The Web site has links to a description of ASQ’s history, as well as a timeline of related historical events (such as the dates of conferences involving technical topics, ethics and quality control) and lists of founding members and past presidents. The University of Illinois maintains the archives.
