Joe is leaving the Board to pursue other opportunities.but will assist Denyse in transitioning to the Finance role. We wish Joe all success and will miss him at our Chapter Board meetings

    Membership Matters

    I would like to welcome the following new members to the Winnipeg APICS Chapter:
    Ning Ma and Christopher Wu. 

    Summer is upon us. It is already June! I know for myself this year seems to be flying by. I hope that everyone is able to take some time for a bit of relaxation this summer. 
    Please help our Chapter by maintaining continuous membership with prompt renewal at your expiration date. This is important to the success of our Chapter as it is a source of funding and keeps our Chapter strong.
    If you know anyone that would like to become an APICS member please pass along my contact information. If you are already a member and were considering volunteering on the Board, please reach out to me at the email address below or contact any Board member. You are welcome to attend a Board Meeting where we can walk you thru the different portfolios to see what might interest you.  It is also important that you keep your contact information current at APICS.org so that you don’t miss out on local APICS events. We hope to see at upcoming tours and events.
