I recently met with a client and we began discussing sources of information, I started to mention this site, and she responded; "You mean the Cove?". As it turns out, she is a regular (I shall not identify her -- to keep her reputation undamaged :biglaugh: ). That got me wondering how many times a Cover has bumped into another Cover. I know that some have been reported to be planned arrangements, but how many times has it happened?

Also, give some details.

I haven't bumped into anyone - but, one of my vendors was browsing and saw my name. He gave me a call and we have been helping each other out with a few things. Sort of a benchmarking relationship.

I'd love to bump into a cover some time. A lot of you are close to my area. Maybe someday. :bigwave:

I have not bumped into any yet. However, before I joined to Cove I was in a class with a Cove member.

I would be interested in talking to some of the members face to face.

Our old Quality Manager showed me the cove on several occasions while he was here and during the "training" period as he was leaving. He now happens to be the Quality Manager for one of our suppliers and is implementing an ISO 9000:2000 system where there was no certified system in place.

I might send a link to another one of our vendors who bought a "canned" package. I don't know how far along they are on their update, but this site might help them like it helped me!

What about us?

We almost made it. Remember? There was a likely prospect that ISO GUY would have been one of our Auditors. But the deal fell through because our CEO decided it was too much money to spend around Christmas time, so he abolished the Quality Department and the Mgt Rep, dashing any plans for registration. (and he wanted to get rid of somebody anyway) :vfunny: :smokin:

I met Richard Olson in a Lead Auditor class I taught last year before I found the cove. Does that count?

He likely does not remember me, but Craig Cochran was one of the speakers at a GA Tech seminar I went to a while ago.

His range of knowledge was impressive.

Nope, haven't met anyone.

Although, :eek: , I admit that I thought WALLACE was a former External Auditor of mine until I figured out he was Ford. I was trying to watch what I said in case he figured out who I was and would hold it against me in a surveillance audit. Big sigh of relief when I discovered the truth! ;)

It would be nice if we could arrange a group meeting for folks in general geographical areas. For example, southern Ontario/upstate NY could pick the Falls as a meeting place.

I also realize that in this day and age, people question their safety when meeting people from online is suggested. I have met online "friends" before and was very thankful that I picked a highly public location for the meeting. Now I've evolved to pick public places and meet in groups of 3 or more - odd numbers tend to prevent pairing off.

I did vote "No - still searching" although that's not quite true. I may not have met anyone, but it's not an active task of mine either. And how do you accidently bump into one?...MARC???...is there some secret handshake you neglected to tell me about? :D
