President's Report

I hope everyone is safe as we continue to battle COVID-19 in both our personal and professional lives. We also wish you a happy Fourth of July Holiday were most of us will enjoy a long weekend.

The Pittsburgh Chapter is planning continuing our classes and programs in the fall starting with online offerings. In September we have both CSCP and CPIM 1 instructor led certification classes and a Speaker Series program.

If  you have any questions on either, feel free to reach out to me at [email protected].
