Memorandum of Understanding between GQMA and SQA

In order to improve the cooperation between the two QA associations GQMA (represented by Dr. Hermann Lehn) and SQA, a Memorandum of Understanding has been developed.

The official joint signature happened during our annual meeting 2004 in Darmstadt by Kevin Yount (President of SQA) and Dr. Holger Dittberner (President of GQMA). With that important step we encourage the cooperation of two big QA societies and send also a signal out, that quality assurance is a very important international field of activity.

The Memorandum of Understanding regulates the conduct of joint meetings, the communication between the societies, the mutial participation on conferences of the other societies, offering guest speakers and information material.

In May 2012, at the SQA-Conference in Miami, the current presidents of the SQA (Nancy J. Gongliewski) and the GQMA (Steffen König) renewed this MoU.
