President's Message

After a prolonged winter, it is looking like Spring is finally here. We just wanted to take the time to thank everyone for your support of PAN APICS and we hope to see you at one of our upcoming events, especially Top Management Night on June 13th. At Top Management Night, we will be announcing the PAN APICS Board for our next fiscal year, the Company of the Year, Member of the Year, the winner of our Inaugural PAN APICS Scholarship, as well as several other awards. The company with the most attendees will be eligible to win a CPIM Part 1 Exam voucher!

That being said, we are looking for volunteers to serve as committee members for each of our board positions. If you are interested in being a committee member or in a board position, please email me at

As a reminder, we have a few upcoming events that we hope to see you at. We have a tour of Holt Logistics on  April 24th, a networking event focused on our educational offerings and meeting young supply chain professionals at the Great American Pub (Conshohocken) on  May 9th, and our Annual Top Management Night on  June 13th!
