ASQ Member Unit Satisfaction and Loyalty Study Open
How can the Customer-Supplier Division enhance your ASQ member experience? Take our survey and let us know. Your input provides guidance for creating opportunities focused on your needs. This allows us to provide the products and services that are most important and beneficial to you.
All ASQ members can provide feedback on how well their divisions and/or sections serve their needs. We appreciate your participation in this survey. Your answers will be kept confidential and reported only in the aggregate. The study is open through February 28. As a thank you, participants will be entered into a drawing to win one of eight $25 ASQ Bucks. ASQ headquarters will provide CSD leadership with the results when available in early spring.
