BELLVUE, WA — The ASQ Inspection Division will honor William C. Meyer as the 2018 Chuck Carter International Inspector of the Year.

Meyer will be acknowledged at an award ceremony held during the division’s annual general membership meeting in conjunction with ASQ’s World Conference on Quality and Improvement in Seattle, WA.

Meyer’s role with the DCMA involves inspecting and accepting product acquired for government agencies; though he primarily focuses on NASA programs, he also supports other government agencies. He is qualified to conduct inspections on NASA, raw/finished materials, mechanical assemblies, energetics, and clothing/textiles.

As an inspector, Meyer is focused on product examination, process reviews, and quality system assessments. Due to the critical nature of many of the products that the government purchases, product examination is still a major focus of the work effort. He is currently Level II NDT certified in: radiography, liquid penetrant, magnetic particle, and ultrasonic Test.

Will Meyer has demonstrated a commitment to personal and professional growth that has led to two associate degrees, an undergraduate degree in business administration, and three masters degrees. He also holds certificates in business administration and project management. He is also a Six Sigma Black Belt and has 15 ASQ certifications.

Meyer resides in Marysville, WA, with his wife, Teresa. He is an active ASQ volunteer serving in many capacities on both the local and national level.

The Inspection Division has offered the Inspector of the Year Award since 1974. For a list of the previous award recipients, an award application, or additional information about the ASQ Inspection Division and the award visit
