Welcome to the New PTC Website

After many months of discussion, planning and building your board is happy to roll out our new chapter website hosted by a different organization.  The website is still under construction and will continue so for several more months as all the work is being done by your volunteer board members.  This new website is considerably different from the old website giving us some different options for maintaining it and providing you with more timely information.  One of the most important elements is the site reliability, this new site will have a much higher up-time than we have had in the past  so that website will be available when you want to view it or register for an event.

This website format allows us to have a members only portion that allows chapter members to have access to areas and information not available to the general public, in particular to obtain the member pricing you must be signed in to the website otherwise you will be charged the non-member pricing.

A key element to the chapter being able to communicate with you better is that YOU must keep your contact information current on the APICS corporate website.  Our member database will be downloaded from APICS on a regular basis and that is how we will contact you whether by snail mail or electronically.  Please let us know your impression of the new site and any suggestions for improving it.
