From the President

Susan Dunn, 2020/2021 APICS Milwaukee Chapter President

Greetings To All Members and Friends of APICS Milwaukee - 

Warm Greetings To All Members and Friends of APICS Milwaukee - 

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, at APICS Milwaukee we are grateful for our members and the Milwaukee supply chain community for your continued support throughout this past year! 2020 has been challenging on so many levels and we are thankful to continue to be able to serve supply chain professionals and students. 

In November, we continued to host our Fall certification classes virtually. Also, Thanks to everyone who was able to attend our November professional developmental webinar on the Toyota Production System with special guest speaker, Errette Dunn, Co-Founder & CEO for Rever, Inc.  

Thanks to Fred Kindelberger, we continue to hold breakfast roundtables virtually. In November, we had a great discussion on Demand Driven with guest speaker Steve Christensen, a Demand Driven expert and instructor of our new Demand Driven Planner certification workshop!

We are also thankful to continue our work with Supply Chain students! An important part of our mission is to spark students' interest in supply chain methodologies through case competitions, internships, resume reviews, mentoring, and more.  

On the education front, I'm excited to announce we just launched new certification classes starting in January! Check our website for more information on CSCPCPIMCLTD and Demand Driven Planner. Earn more in 2021 with an APICS certification. APICS Milwaukee is here to help!

We announced some big news last week that as of January 2021 we will be merging with the APICS Racine/Kenosha chapterWe are excited that combined we will be able to offer our members access to more valuable content as well as additional opportunities to network with other supply chain professionals. Combining will expand educational options and allow for increased support for supply chain students. Overall, we will be stronger working together to serve our supply chain community. 

Finally, we hope you can join us for our last professional development meeting in 2020 on December 10th where we'll be discussing quick response manufacturing, a very important topic these days. We're excited to hear from Dr. Charlene Yauch, the Associate Director of the Center for QRM at University of WI-Madison. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me via email or hopefully we'll get a chance to connect at an upcoming event.  

Thanks again for being a part of the APICS Milwaukee Chapter. Watch for more exciting news in the upcoming months on how we are growing to serve you better! 

I hope you are able to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday. As always, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or comments. 

Best Regards,

Susan Dunn
