Chicago Welcomes QUEST
There is excitement in Chicago about being the hosting city for the first QUEST conference in the United States. Although QUEST is new, the conference builds upon a long history of successful Quality Assurance Institute's conferences over the past 27 years. The conference's roots go back to the early 1980s when QAI held its conferences in Chicago for five consecutive years, before moving the annual spring conference to Orlando. So for QUEST, the year 2008 marks both a homecoming and a new beginning.
QAI's Chicago Chapter, formerly the Chicago Quality Assurance Association (CQAA), is ready to welcome QUEST back home and roll out the red carpet for our out-of-town guests visiting Chicago. We are planning a welcome reception on Tuesday evening to help acquaint our guests with Chicago and network members from other QAI Chapters around the world. The Chicago QAI Chapter's Board of Directors and the QAI staff are dedicated to making your QUEST experience and visit to Chicago valuable and memorable.
We hope you will be part of this inaugural QUEST conference and seize this opportunity to LEARN, ASSESS, APPLY, and CONNECT with fellow quality advocates and testing professionals both locally and worldwide.
CQAA (Chicago QAI Chapter) President
QUEST Conference Chairperson
