I would like to take this time to provide an update to our membership on the status of ASQ Charleston as it relates to the ASQ Transformation.  I encourage our membership to take the time to review the attached ppt which explains the what/how/why of the current transformation of ASQ.  Please click here for the ppt.

It is my intention to resign as your Chair on September 1st, 2018.  This was an extremely difficult decision for me as I have just assumed the chair responsibility at the beginning of 2018.  We have had a great program thus far in 2018 and I thank all of those who have provided their support to ASQ Charleston.  2018 marks the first year our Section has awarded our ASQ Student Scholarship to two worthy applicants. A special thanks to ASQ Charleston’s extended Leadership including our officers and our committee chairs.

So where does this leave our Section?  There is currently no Vice Chair/Chair Elect.  Our Secretary has recently moved away from Charleston and would only be able to provide support remotely through the end of the year.  Our treasurer has no desire to continue his duties past the end of this year.  This means ASQ Charleston will dissolve if no others wish to step up and provide leadership for our Section.  If you are interested in learning more about this leadership opportunity or have any other questions regarding the transformation, please reach out to me to discuss.  (

Again, please let me know if you have interest in providing Leadership to our Section.  In the event no one takes the initiative to become our Section’s future Chair, our August Membership Meeting will be our last meeting for the foreseeable future.  Thank you all for your support this year.

Warm regards,

Karl J. Krull
