A Message from the President and CEO May 2018

As we enter May, once again we feel the sense that the year is rushing away from us. How quickly the time passes. This often applies to many facets of life, with our professional lives no exception.

As a sector, we were given three years to transition to the new versions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. This included certified organizations, certification bodies, and auditors.

As quickly as other facets of time pass, so too has this transition period. We now have only a few months left to make the transition. I urge you to complete your transition at your earliest convenience. We have created a new transition webpage which is intended to help. Click here to view the page.

It is now only a matter of days until the second International Auditor Symposium (IAS) commences. With over 40 terrific speakers on numerous valuable topics, the conference does not require you to go anywhere. You can access the symposium whenever you want, wherever you are. The symposium will be available at www.exemplarglobal.org/ias2018 from May 7 to 18. Remember, continuing professional development credits and certificates of attendance are available. The conference is free to attend for Exemplar Global certified auditors and a discounted rate is available for ASQ Certified Quality Auditors and graduates of Exemplar Global training courses. I hope that you enjoy the IAS. We welcome your feedback on the event.
