The Resource Center is the name of MAQIN’s collection of books, videos, audio tapes, journals, and newsletters. The collection was developed overtime to support members’ learning and growth in the field of quality improvement and a select few related fields. The collection is located in the MAQIN office; it is available to members during office hours, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. The Resource Center is largely self serve. Members, may reserve materials and make inquiries about item availability through the web site. Members who are not located in Madison may borrow materials through the mail.

Founded in 1987, we’re one of the oldest community improvement associations.
We are an independent organization, supported only by membership dues and program revenues.
Our annual Hunter Conference features the latest in continuous improvement theory and practice.
We’ve outlived many changes in buzzwords. What was “quality improvement” became TQM, which became process improvement, then business effectiveness and so on.
Our membership represents most major employers in the Madison area, from every sector including manufacturing, service, government, education, and nonprofits.

The Madison Area Quality Improvement Network (MAQIN) is a membership organization based in Madison, Wisconsin, dedicated to helping individuals and organizations work and learn effectively.
