Quality council event is Tuesday

Registration is at 7:30 a.m., along with breakfast and networking, and the program will be from 7:45 a.m. to 9 a.m. at Rochester Community & Technical College University Center, Coffman Building, 206/208.

The event is free to members, $15 for partners and $30 for non-members. Space is limited. To register, contact


The next local event is a Lean Six Sigma Forum on Aug. 9, focusing on what drives improvement and performance excellence at Mayo Clinic.
