President’s Message

September 9th will start the program season this year at the Rivertowne Pour House in Monroeville. The event will be a little different than our normal location tours in that there will not be a tour but we will have a presentation from the brew master. We are using this as a kickoff for the season and will provide ample opportunity for the membership to socialize. We will also use this event to introduce the Pittsburgh Chapter Board members in attendance

The Pittsburgh Chapter will continue with its green initiative by providing the newsletter electronically. Please watch the website for changes or updates to the PDM schedule. http://apics-pgh.org/

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to: APICS Scholarship Fund, Pittsburgh Chapter #31, PO BOX 3463, Pittsburgh PA 15230.
