From the President

Susan Dunn, 2020/2021 APICS Milwaukee Chapter President

Greetings To All Members and Friends of APICS Milwaukee - 

Hope this note finds you well. We have had a strong start to our program year, kicking off our certification classes and hosting a professional development meeting Demand Driven last week that had attendees from all over the world.  

As always, we remain committed to serving supply chain professionals at all stages of their careers. In support of our future supply leaders, we are excited to welcome Richard Pues to our APICS Milwaukee Board of Directors. Richard is an experienced supply chain professional, who teaches supply chain classes and leads the APICS Student Chapter at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. We are also looking forward to working closely with the student supply chain associations at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Marquette University. Also, in support of students, our new 2020 corporate sponsor program supports supply chain students with scholarships.
