Reduce your recertification fees PDF Print E-mail

You can reduce the fees for recertifying with ASQ by one simple step: just renew your membership immediately after you receive a first notice from ASQ.  They are so grateful for your prompt action that they will send you a coupon code when you renew for $69 off the fee.  Other reward options, if you aren't certified, are $100 off an ASQ training, $100 off registration fees for the next World Conference on Quality and Improvement, $30 off ASQ e-Learning, or 25% off one ASQ Quality Press book.  All discounts are good for the 12 months after you receive the coupon code.  This makes keeping your eyes open for that envelope from ASQ headquarters a little more meaningful.
Yours in quality,
Don Mintz, Section Chair, ASQ Silicon Valley Section
