GTA topic June 25: Systems certifications

The Gorge Technology Alliance hosts a presentation on June 25th by Marcia Buser on what it takes for an organization to register to the ISO 9001 and AS9100 standards.

The presentation will start soon after 6 p.m. at the White Buffalo, 4040 Westcliff Dr.

Buser will also cover how to select a registrar, tips for success, common mistakes and examples of quality documents, and she will include plenty of time for questions. Cost is $10 for non-GTA members, appetizers included.

The ISO 9000 family of standards is related to quality management systems and designed to help businesses ensure that they meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders while meeting statutory and regulatory requirements related to their product.

The standards are published by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization. ISO 9001 deals with the requirements that businesses wishing to meet the standard have to fulfill. AS9100 is a widely adopted and standardized quality management system specific to the aerospace industry.

The Gorge Technology Alliance supports, connects and develops the technology community of the Columbia River Gorge.

It meets each month with networking and educational opportunities. Learn more about this month’s presenter or about the GTA at

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
