President’s Message

May is the last scheduled PDM for this season. The Pittsburgh Chapter PDM season starts in September and runs through May with December being an off month. There are plenty of opportunities to reinforce your understanding of the APICS body of knowledge and how it applies at the host company while networking with other professionals. PDMs are scheduled for the second Wednesday of each month. Mark your calendars.

As stated in the Pittsburgh Chapter By-laws chapter Board of
Director elections must occur at the last scheduled meeting.   The ballot with the members’ names and Board position can be viewed using the provided link (2015-2016 pittsburgh-board-of-directors-elections).  The Board is currently drafting by-law changes that will be shared in the newsletter in the coming months.
