The majority were for software engineer, around 18 to 20. There were 2 for CRE, none for CMI, none for CQT. e) Community Quality Council: Three subcommittee members were present at the Forum for Excellence in Richmond on April 22, 1997. Catherine Brooks and David Kae did a fine job of manning our display booth, which looked absolutely wonderful; in fact it was one of the most impressive displays there. Catherine approached Dr. Mark Edwards, the SPQA Board Chair, directly and asked him about our proposal to use the SPQA process as the driver of our NVCQC efforts. He acknowledged receiving the letter, indicated some concern on the part of board members and assured her that the board would address the issue again. Catherine and Mark have been lobbying the board members individually on their insights as to what is going on. The NVCQC have developed alternative courses of action including proceeding with our plans without their blessing or to create our own community quality award. The committee will make a decision by the next board meeting. f) Chair-Elect: Have received the Section Management Plan materials from National.
