Who We Are
The North Carolina Chapter of the Society of Quality Assurance (NCCSQA) became a chapter of the national Society of Quality Assurance (SQA) in 1998. It was originally founded in 1989 as the North Carolina Quality Assurance Discussion Group. At that time, a small group of regulatory professionals in the Research Triangle area of NC realized that by pooling their resources and information, they could be much more effective. The desire for informality, equality and friendliness which designated the founding members as a "Discussion Group" still pervades the organization, although its growth has forced the chapter to adopt a more formal structure. NCCSQA membership has grown from approximately 30 members to almost 250 active participants. The NCCSQA region includes North Carolina plus anyone from surrounding areas who wishes to join. General meetings are held quarterly at a location in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
