2019 CR Speaker Series Event:  During the last webinar – the second in the series – 60% of attendees expressed interest in hearing from an asset owner/investor to learn how they use environmental, social and governance (ESG) data; in response, we're offering an in-person event on September 25th, featuring members of the investment community leading a panel discussion. We’ll hear initial research findings on investor perspectives of ESG ratings and learn the approaches asset managers/investors take to evaluate ESG information to inform their investment decisions.

2019 Quality Summit: The theme of this year’s one and a half day event is “Developing Quality Competencies for Organizational Success.” In addition to an OEM panel discussing customer specific requirements – including their transition plans to the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook – industry experts will share insights on the following: a lean perspective on transitioning from training records to evidence of competency; a balanced approach beyond “training” to developing quality skills; an automotive supplier case study showing the direct impact of training and competency development with quality performance improvement, and much more! For those in town prior to the event, we'll also be offering our AIAG & VDA Process FMEA: Transitioning for Practitioners course, September 30 - October 1, at a 10% discount for attendees!
