2018 Region 14A Member Leader Training

On January 20th, the Section leaders for Region 14A met in Southeast Austin at a little place called the Circuit of the Americas for Member Leader training hosted by ASQ Austin. ASQ San Antonio was represented by Ben Tovar, Manuel Tamez, Robert Perez, and Gloria French. Leaders met at 8 am until 4:30 pm and discussions ranged from basic member tasks as key member leader dates to more complex as the future of ASQ. All leaders enjoyed the day especially during the ad hoc tour of the video room at the Circuit of the Americas.
