October 2018 Print

Chapter President's Message

Where did the summer go?  I cannot believe that it is October already.  School is back in session for the kids, and we are trying to adapt to new routines.  The Chapter's Board of Directors are also back after the summer break and working hard to plan some exciting events.  I look forward to seeing many of you at these events.  Whether it is in Chicago later this month at the conference, a CPIM class or a plant tour, you will gain a lot of valuable insight into supply chain.

The board is always looking for new ideas for PDM’s and other events for our Chapter.  If you have any ideas for a PDM or your org would like to host a tour, please let us know!

Your Chapter President,
