Chapter President's Message

Dear Supply Chain professionals,

            Hopefully you have had a great summer spending quality time with family and friends! APICS Columbus will resume its PDM schedule on September 19th with a guest speaker from the city of Gahanna. Jennifer Teal, Gahanna’s City Administrator, will share her stories and insights in implementing Lean and Six Sigma principles that have transformed the city into one of the fastest growing suburbs in Metropolitan Columbus area. We invite you to check out the city’s YouTube video on Lean Gahanna program. We will finalize the meeting location and send a separate announcement as soon as possible. Click here to learn more about the meeting.

           The deadline to qualify for a free CLTD retake exam is August 31, 2017. All candidates who purchase and sit for the CLTD exam between May 15 and August 31, 2017 qualify for this promotion. The retake exam, if needed, will be issued to candidates the first week of September with instructions on how to schedule the exam through the My APICS portal. As always if you or your company is interested to have an in-house training class during weekdays or weekend, please contact us at

           A few APICS Columbus board members are attending the APICS annual conference in San Antonio this upcoming October. If you are planning to come, let us know so that we can meet and network. If you have not registered for the conference, you may still do so by registering here.

           Finally, we also want to take this opportunity to recognize Joe Hufschmitt as APICS Volunteer of the year, Andrea Prud’homme as APICS Instructor of the year, and Marketing and Engineering Solutions, Inc. as APICS Company of the year. Congratulations to all recipients!


To your success,
