From the President

Susan Dunn, 2020/2021 APICS Milwaukee Chapter President

Greetings To All Members and Friends of APICS Milwaukee - 

As the incoming President for the APICS Milwaukee Chapter, I'm looking forward to continuing the great work done by our chapter. APICS Milwaukee remains committed to the local supply chain community during these very challenging times.

I have been a part of this organization for many years and know firsthand the incredible value we bring to local supply chain professionals, the business community and students. As we start a new program year, I'd first like to thank our outgoing president, Ed Haynes, CLTD, CSCP, for his service and leadership as we quickly transitioned to 100% virtual education and networking events this past spring. Thank you Ed for all that you have done for the chapter and for continuing to serve as an instructor and on the board of directors!

The months ahead will be challenging as the world continues to navigate through uncertainty. Understanding many are still not comfortable with meeting in-person, we are planning to continue to offer virtual options for our Fall certification courses, one breakfast roundtable per month and professional development meetings on today's most pressing supply chain topics.

We are committed to helping supply chain professionals succeed and look for your support to help us continue with our mission by participating in our offerings, encouraging your employer to sponsor our chapter financial needs and supporting supply chain students with scholarships. 

In terms of upcoming events, we are hosting several instructor-led certification classes with the ability to attend virtually or in-person starting in September. Below is a listing of the classes starting as early as September 10th.  

  • CPIM Basics (Certified in Production and Inventory Management)–  CPIM Basics is the perfect introductory course for production and inventory management personnel and CPIM candidates. This is the recommended first course in the APICS CPIM program. Class starts: 9/10/20. Member Price: $1,075 Non-Member Price: $1,195. 
  • CPIM Part II– The second part of the CPIM certification workshop designed for comprehensive professional development and exam preparation for CPIM certification. Class starts: October. Member Price: $1,475 Non-Member Price: $1,595.

We also have a virtual Breakfast Roundtable planned for 8/19 where you'll have an opportunity to connect and discuss the topic of S&OP Tools. 

If you are looking for more information on what we do at APICS Milwaukee, we are hosting a FREE Informational Webinar on the Value of Certification and APICS Membership on 8/20 where you'll get a chance to hear from our instructors on upcoming certification courses. We also have a special guest speaker Tim Wild, an experienced Supply Chain Executive, most recently he was the VP of Global Supply Chain for Briggs & Stratton. He will be sharing his thoughts on the value of APICS certification to individuals and organizations.

I look forward to serving you and our supply chain community in the year ahead. I'm encouraged by the strength and fortitude of supply chain professionals, positioned to lead in moments like this. 

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

Susan Dunn
