President's Message

We are getting ready for the annual "Mega Meeting" next month, which is on March 13, 2019. This annual event brings together all of the supply chain organizations across the Delaware Valley and will be focused on the Music of Supply Chain in the Delaware Valley - please see below for further details. Register here today !

An important announcement we are making this month is that we will be offering a scholarship again this year, but we have an important change. We are proud to announce that the scholarship will now be in memoriam of former PAN APICS volunteer, Janet Hillier. A volunteer for over 30 years, Janet was a fixture on the PAN APICS Board of Directors, in the classroom as an educator, and at PAN APICS events. The PAN APICS chapter and our members are forever indebted to her for her time spent advancing supply chain and operations management with the APICS name in this region. Janet passed suddenly in 2015 and will forever be missed. Scholarship information is available here and applications open March 15.

Lastly, we are still enrolling for our CPIM Part 1, CLTD, and SCOR classes. Sign up today here !
