President's Report

December 2018

Dear Supply Chain Professionals,

                Thank you to Joseph Schrettner and the OSU B.O.M.S. group, as well as Owens & Corning for hosting our joint meeting last month.  It was encouraging to see how many students were present at this event and the future of Supply Chain Professionals. Student interns from Owens & Corning presented Real World issues they are tackling from their internships. You will find photos from the event here. Thank you eveyrone who was able to come down to campus for this PDM!

               Please join us at our January PDM on January 8th for a Joint meeting with ASQ at Crown Plaza. More information and registration details will be coming out shortly. 

              The Education master schedule was recently updated, we are working to put together a CPIM training for the middle of January. We need at least 5 students to attend for a class or refresher, the cutoff date is January 12, 2019, if you are interested, please signup! Corporations can always schedule in-house courses that meet your requirements outside of the public course schedule.  Contact Steve Fedan, education@apics-col.org.

             BOLO: Currently the APICS Columbus chapter is looking for two Board of Directors members. Our current open positions are Executive Vice President and a Member at Large. If you are interested in learning more about these open positions please contact president@apics-col.org. 

             Since ASCM did away with their District meetings, they are having a Geo meeting this May 17-18, 2019 in Washington D.C. If you have questions about the meeting please contact president@apics-col.org. The registration opens January 21, 2019

             If you plan on attending ASCM 2019, September 16-18, in Las Vegas Nevada AND sign up by the end of the year, ASCM will throw in a Facility Tour for FREE. These tours fill up fast, so get ahead of the schedule and register for one now. 

                Again please check out and like our social media pages on facebook (@apciscolumbus), instagram (@apics.columbus), twitter (@apicscolumbus), and LinkedIn (@APICS Columbus).
