Current ASQ President David Spong will become past chair effective July 1, 2011, and James R. Rooney, who is currently chair-elect, will move into the chair position.

  • New Executive Council

    During his term, ASQ’s 2010-11 chair David Spong, renamed the office of the president, among other actions. The model works to define the responsibility, accountability, and authority of the executive director, the president, the chairman, the office of the president, the board and the office of the president structure, job titles and job descriptions. On May 15, 2011, the ASQ membership approved changes to the current body of governance. Effective immediately, the new titles are:

  • The office of the president becomes the executive council.
  • The president-elect becomes chair-elect.
  • President becomes chair.
  • When the president fulfills his term, he then becomes past chair.
  • Executive director becomes chief executive officer (effective November 2010).
