The Calgary Section of ASQ is hosting a networking, dinner and presentation event on Wednesday February, 10th at the
Best Western Village Park Inn
1804 Crowchild Trail NW
The speaker at the event is Dr. Malcolm Smith who will present on:
“Calibrate, Assess Conformance, Manage Risk. Sound boring? It isn’t”
The measurement systems we use today can be traced back to notches on sticks or marks on stone up to 40,000 years ago; counting developed before written numbers and words.
Take a brief trip through history to see how things have developed and how a worldwide uniformity of measurement has been achieved and what this means to the users of the most basic measuring tools.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for networking while dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m.
Tickets for the event are $35 for ASQ members and $45 for non-members.
