President’s Message

I would like to thank the members who have braved the elements to attend the professional development meetings. Your survey comments and suggestions are reviewed by the PDM team to improve your experience. PDMs are scheduled the 2nd Wednesday of the month September through May so mark your calendars. A good number of Pittsburgh members also attended the Youngstown Chapter’s PDM at Wendell August Forge in Mercer. The tour was just at the northern end of the Pittsburgh Chapter’s coverage and I would like to thank the Youngstown Chapter for inviting our members to participate. It is always nice to network with other chapters.

Chapter Board of Director elections are scheduled to occur at the May PDM meeting. The ballot with the member’s name and board position they are seeking will be in the April newsletter and on the website by March 10th. (Click here for list of nominees) The membership votes on three Board positions: President, VP Administration and VP of Finance. Additional Board members are appointed by the President. If you would like to give back to the supply chain community by serving on the Pittsburgh Chapter’s Board of Directors Contact Tom Brown at thomassbrown@eaton.com.

The education team has finalized winter and spring offerings. The latest schedule is posted on the website, and elsewhere in this newsletter. Our team would be happy to discuss customized content and schedule if needed. Please contact Jack Martis at jfm2620@comcast.net to allow him to tailor an offering that would fit your needs.
