From the President

Edward W Haynes, CSCP, CLTD 2019/2020 APICS Milwaukee Chapter President

Warm Greetings To All Members and Friends of APICS Milwaukee - 

We have officially kicked off our new program year with a great event at the Mecca Sports Bar & Grill, several certification courses for CPIM, CSCP & CLTD and we hosted a tour this week at Pierce Manufacturing, a Division of Oshkosh Truck!

  

Also, as you may have seen, I'm proud to share that APICS Milwaukee was recognized by the Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM) with their 2019 Award of Excellence for Digital Engagement. We received this award last month at the national ASCM Conference in Las Vegas. If you ever have the opportunity to attend this event, I highly encourage you to do so. This year participants heard from national thought leaders on hot topics impacting supply chains, global sustainability, logistics and more! Next year's event will be in New Orleans and we hope to see you there!

  

We have had some great discussions and tours at our breakfast roundtables! These happen twice a month and are always valuable to all able to attend! 

Next, I'm excited to announce our November 14th professional development meeting on "How the New Trade Tariffs are Impacting the Global Supply Chain." This is an important topic impacting many of our companies. We are fortunate to have Tom Degnan - Director Global Transportation and Customs Compliance at WernerCo Worldwide come and share his thoughts with us. Tom is an operationally-focused global logistics, transportation, distribution, and international trade compliance professional. He has experience with start-ups to mid-cap to Fortune 250 companies across manufacturing, chemicals, consumer products, plastics, logistics service providers, and consulting industries. His responsibilities include P&L and budgets upwards of $500 million, functional oversight of up to 60 facilities globally, and leading worldwide teams in excess of 160 direct and indirect reports. Hope you are all able to join us!

Lastly, I'd like to mention a few other opportunities we are offering for our supply chain community: 

  • HR professionals and companies can post their jobs for FREE on our website Job Board. In this tight job market, we are here to help you find experienced supply chain professionals! 
  • We are also looking for APICS instructors! If you currently hold an APICS certification, (or will in a few months!!), and feel the calling to pay it forward to others YOU are who we are looking for!
  • As we plan for 2020 events, we are always looking for companies to tour and speakers to share their knowledge. Please reach out to us if you and/or your company might be interested in hosting a tour to showcase your supply chain expertise!

Thank you for your continued support. We will be announcing our winter/spring education line soon. As your Chapter President, please don't hesitate to reach out to me via email with questions and feedback. I also hope to see you at an upcoming event!

Best Regards,

Edward W Haynes
