Join Us Each Month at Our Leadership Team Meeting

Come join the leadership team this month at DeVry University, Fort Washington campus, for ASQ Philly leadership team meetings. All are welcome, members, prospective members and guests.

We meet every second Wednesday of each month except July and August.

The address (for those who haven’t been there before) is 1140 Virginia Drive, Fort Washington, PA. There is construction being done on Virginia Drive before reaching Camp Hill Road at the University entrance so you will need to enter the complex from Ditech (the first light up the street) and drive around the buildings until you reach the front entrance of DeVry. Once you enter the building please check in with the guard at the door. Then proceed through the Atrium past the library and turn left to room 124.

A complimentary light dinner is served.

Keystone Alliance for Performance Excellence (KAPE) Becomes Mid-Atlantic Alliance for Performance Excellence (MAAPE)

What was formerly the Keystone Alliance for Performance Excellence is entering the 2017 Award Cycle as a newly formed regional program called the Mid-Atlantic Alliance for Performance Excellence (MAAPE), now serving Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. In addition to the name change, our website has changed. You can check it out at www.midatlanticpe.org. We hope that you’ll bookmark it and visit us often.  The year 2017 is sure to be an exciting one.

If your organization plans to be an applicant in the 2017 award cycle, you’ll need to complete and submit an Intent to Apply form by January 6, 2017. The form can be found on our new Downloads/Forms Page.

Serving as a MAAPE examiner is an opportunity for personal and professional development and growth. It is an opportunity to work as part of a diverse team of professionals from various sectors. Examiners are volunteers who want to make a difference and help drive breakthrough improvement in their own organizations, as well as learn and promote identified role-model practices to make our region a better place to live and work. Examiner applications are due by January 13, 2017 and can be found on the Downloads/Forms Page.

Please contact me Bob Bitner at (717) 737-6470 or bbitner@midatlantic.org with any questions that you may have.
