About the St Louis Quality Assurance Association

Background The idea of starting the St. Louis Quality Assurance Association (STLQAA) was born because of the need of having a place and time to gather with colleagues of software quality in the area, and was also inspired by the activities of the previous association.

Founders The founders of the STLQAA are all certified CSTE and/or CSQA and their combined experience is the greatest value for this group.

The STLQAA counts on the experience of one of the chairpersons who participated in the previous association.

Dave Magditch began his career as a network operator for the government in 1977, and retired in 2015 as QA Manager at Stauder Technologies. In between, he worked as a Computer Programmer (FORTRAN), Software Configuration Management Analyst, QC Tester, QA Analyst, and QA Manager. Companies he worked for as a Developer, Tester, QA Analyst or QA Manager include Defense Mapping Agency, McDonnell Douglas (Boeing), Anheuser-Busch, Maritz, Clark Oil (Premcor), Wells Fargo, MasterCard, Iron Data (Micropact), and Stauder. His boss at Maritz (Victor Havens) said he worked for so many companies because he couldn't hold a  job! He's currently a part-time QA Consultant for Vinuity.

ESH is Building 10 (shown in brown) on the map. It is located on West Drive and is internally connected to the tallest building on campus (i.e., the Tower Building which is Building 11). There is a parking garage on West Drive (#52) where you can park but anywhere on West Drive would be fine to park.


QAI Global Institute

The QAI Global Institute, formerly known as Quality Assurance Institute, was founded in 1980 in the United States of America. QAI's founding objective was and remains to provide leadership in improving quality, productivity, and effective solutions for process management in the information services profession. It is a worldwide membership organization serving over 1000 corporate members, organized to share state-of-the-art methods, tools, and techniques. Combined experience of QAI experts and their member companies provides an impressive body of knowledge, a reservoir for their members to share. QAI has transformed this knowledge and experience into a "how-to" approach that is being taught worldwide.

QAI takes pride in being one of the first professional organizations to recognize the need for quality assurance and to have the vision to be exclusively devoted to the information technology profession. QAI provides leadership and state-of-the-art solutions in the form of consulting, education and training services, and assessments.
