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.
