As mentioned before we were present at RAMS again as a sponsor and with a booth.
We managed to welcome a lot of our members, during the conference and while having our annual RAMS dinner.
The dinner with special announcements took place at Brickworks American Restaurant. More about the actual RAMS symposium in later posts on our website.
We overcame challenges with Eventbrite and were able to set up the dinner for all ASQ RRD members. We welcomed our members with a nice dinner that was co-hosted by ASQ ECD and ASQ RRD.
There was a speech from our Chair Trevor talking about past year, future plans and thanking the numerous volunteers for their hard work for the Division and in particular David Auda for the year in, year out perfect webinar organizing and (co-)hosting.
There was one award presented this year for the 2018-2019 QE best reliability paper award that was announced by Rong.
