    President's Report

    Dear APICS friends,

    Thanks to the hard work of your Board, Winnipeg Chapter has retained the highest 'Platinum' status awarded by APICS in 2020! We are proud of this achievement and I wish o thank my fellow Board members, Denyse, Lorelyn, Chitra and Dwayne for their hard work which led to this recognition

    We are happy to see more supply chain professionals achieving certification this year compared to the past few years. This may be a result of the growing realisation that cutting edge globally recognised certifications like CPIM, CSCP, and CLTD are a differentiator when it comes to career advancement and the competitive job market

    Our first virtual CPIM class concluded a couple of weeks ago. Thanks to Joe Low for instructing and to the students who registered. The feedback has been good. There were definitely some learning moments and we shall continue to release more offerings in 2021.

    Membership Matters

    Hello All,

    It is great to see the members continuing to develop through our certifications. This month I would like to send a congradulations out to Casey Lamoine! She recently completed her CPIM certification.

    Casey started working at Bausch Health (formerly Biovail) in 2002. She is married and has two boys ages 7 and 10. Her current position at Bausch Health is Operational Production Planner. Her job is very fast paced as there are different challenges everyday. Caseys' thoughts after completing her CPIM certification "This past summer I completed my CPIM Certification and feel this will enable me to further my knowledge in my position.” 

    Watch for free access to our Principles on Demand course Basics of Distribution and Logistics. This access will give you 90 days to complete the course content. Great opportunity to refresh and gain maintenance points if you have already complted it.   

    Please contact me if you have any questions, or comments. You can email me at [email protected]
