State of the Chapter: Looking Ahead
A message from PTC Board President, Dan Swan:
Moving towards 2015, PTC Chapter volunteers continue to work at improving the new website, with the goal of making it more engaging and user friendly for Members and all of our visitors. (No, we are not professional website managers and yes, we do appreciate your insights!)
Digging into the statistics, we've found that about half of our members hold APICS professional certifications - wish we had more! With our busy lives, making time for continued learning can be a challenge. Don't forget that independent study can lead to certification as well. Fox Valley Technical College offers online learning courses; [Click Here] for a look at their current schedule. For a more personal experience, our own chapter - with new APICS course materials and seasoned supply chain instructors - provides highest quality APICS instruction in your local area.
CPIM & CSCP are significant educational milestones with proven impact on professional growth and earning potential, organizational enrichment and, perhaps most importantly, your own personal achievement. So join over 100,000 of your peers in a global supply chain network of professionals with APICS CPIM & CSCP certification - and take your knowledge and career to the next level.
On a final note, for personal and professional reasons, our Chapter Executive VP recently resigned. While this does not disrupt the day to day activity of your Board, we have yet to determine a replacement; typically the President Elect for the following Board year. If interested in this or any PTC leadership role - please contact us. We're always looking for folks who want to help!
Looking forward to seeing you at the next event.
Join us Tuesday, January 13th for a follow-up tour to the terrific presentation that Vijaya Bhasin (Regional Supply Chain Manager with Caterpillar) gave at our December Professional Development Meeting. We are excited to be touring Caterpillar’s Winston-Salem axle plant (an 850,000 square-foot machining, assembly, testing and painting facility), which constructed on a 102-acre site, was one of the biggest projects in NC history. The $426 million axle-manufacturing plant, located on Temple School Road in Winston-Salem, represents the advanced components and systems division’s biggest expenditure ever.
Our meal will be catered by Steven’s Catering in Winston-Salem, and will be held on-site in CAT’s cafeteria beginning at 5:45. The menu includes a selection of soups and sandwiches, a potato bar, salad, desserts and drinks. Caterpillar is providing a team of knowledgeable tour guides that will begin tours around 6:30, providing us information abouttheir plant and the really cool BIG TRUCKS that we all want to see…Don’t miss this event!
