About Us

The ASQ Chicago Section 1201 is an active local unit of the ASQ (formerly the American Society for Quality Control). The Chicago Section has a rich History dating back to 1944, and is one of the founding Sections of ASQ. We are also one of the largest Sections in ASQ with a roster exceeding 1000 Members. With the advantage of these vast member resources and the diverse industrial/commercial activity in the area, the ASQ Chicago Section strives to contribute to the professional development of our Members, provide value and service to our Community, and promote the awareness, development and practice of Quality and Organizational Excellence.

“ASQ is a global community of people passionate about quality. Members of the community gain access to unparalleled resources and a knowledge network that links the best ideas, tools and experts to make our businesses, institutions, communities, each other – our world – work better.”

Under the leadership of our Board of Directors, Committee Members and Section Volunteers, we manage an active program for our Membership, including:

General Meetings and Events
