The Hidden Value in an ASQ Membership
Upon joining ASQ, new members are provided a long list of membership benefits that show the value a person will obtain for their annual registration fee. However, what is not provided is the extensive list of hidden benefits and value that an astute member acquires over time. This presentation will help you shorten that learning curve! Nearly two dozen non-advertised but meaningful benefits of being an ASQ member will be provided and explained throughout this presentation. Upon completion attendees will know many more ways for them to get the most out of their ASQ membership.
