Chapter President's Message

The Chapter is quickly approaching the end of our operational year.  It seems just like yesterday that the kids started back to school and we were planning our year of activities with members and the community.  This year has been full of new members and classes, not to mention all the changes and challenges that the current times are presenting in our daily lives.  Over the years, supply chains have learned to adapt from ships full of containers lining up in California waiting to be unloaded, supply disruptions in Asia due to a tsunami and now a global pandemic.  Due to recent events, the Chapter has had to cancel the annual member recognition and appreciation dinner.  However, we still want to recognize each of you for your achievements.  Without our members, the NCOH would not exist.  So, THANK YOU!

Your Chapter President,

Certification and Education

The CLTD program was launched a couple of years ago.  This year, the Chapter had an opportunity to schedule a class for some people to work through the process of obtaining their CLTD certification.  Due to the global pandemic, there was a delay in starting the class.  After working out the logistics with all participants, the class became a virtual class and we are successfully navigating online training!

Are you still interested in registering for a class and completing your CPIM or CLTD certification?  Click here to email us to be added to the mailing list.
