A few words from the Board of Directors

Thank you to those who have attended our events so far this program year and for those of you who continue to support our chapter through your participation and membership in APICS.

By now you’ve heard about the changes within the APICS organization - now the Association for Supply Chain Management (https://www.ascm.org/) . As the importance of supply chain management continues to grow within organizations both large and small, its important, more than ever, to have a understanding of supply chain - regardless of what position you hold in your organization.
