Brandman enters strategic partnership agreement with the American Society for Quality, Orange Empire
IRVINE, Calif. (September 8, 2014) – Brandman University’s School of Extended Education, one of five schools within Brandman University, well-recognized for its rich history of supporting adult learners, today announced its partnership with the Orange Empire Section of the American Society for Quality (ASQ), a global community of people passionate about quality.
ASQ offers educational programs to its members, many of which complement the wide range of continuing education programs offered by the School of Extended Education, making the strategic partnership beneficial to both organizations. The ASQ Orange Empire group is the fourth-largest chapter in the United States, serving more than 1,300 members including technicians, engineers, supervisors and managers. The group promotes learning and networking through educational courses, seminars and presentations.
“ASQ is a leading professional organization in our community; entering a strategic partnership has proven to be mutually valuable,” says Vicki Brannock, senior director of the School of Extended Education. “We look forward to the year ahead, and being able to offer ASQ members access to our space and subject matter experts for their first-rate education programs.”
The Orange Empire chapter of ASQ is highly active, with nearly 100 members attending monthly meetings. Brannock worked with ASQ Programs Chair Dave Nagy to solidify the formal partnership.
“Our members are committed to education in support of their professional development,” says Dieter Eckstein, vice chair of ASQ Orange Empire. “Working with Brandman University’s School of Education helps expand our education offerings and provide a new value-add to our growing network.”
