    President's Report

    Dear APICS member

    Hope you’re enjoying our great summer.
    We at the Winnipeg Chapter Board are looking forward to another exciting year.
    Denyse Masserey is transitioning to looking after Chapter finances from Joe Low, a stalwart of our Chapter who will be sorely missed.
    Denyse leaves a void in the leadership of the membership role and is looking for volunteers to fill in this position. Please do reach out to her or anyone on the Board if you’re interested
    Max Block, our incoming APICS Student Chapter President has planned a number of events with his UMSCO Board and we look forward to supporting them all the way
    Colin, our VP of Education, has rolled out the fall schedule of educational offerings. There is a lot of interest in the new CPIM format with 2 instead of 5 modules while the body of knowledge has been retained and enhanced.
    We’ve successfully conducted 2 corporate training programs this year. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with queries

    Membership Matters

    I would like to welcome our newest member Spencer Martens to the APICS Winnipeg Chapter.

    Also this month, I would like to congratulate a long standing member of APICS. Please help me to applaud Humphrey Vernaus who has earned his 25 year pin this past January. Thank-you Humphrey, for all your hard work, commitment and contribution to APICS over the past 25 years. Also Mandy Wiens has earned her 5 year pin this past March 2018. Mandy is currently the VP of Communications for the Winnipeg Chapter.

    Recent changes on the Board find me moving to the position of VP of Finance. As the VP of Membership for the past 3 years, it has been my pleasure to work with members registering and renewing their membership.  Lorelyn is remaining in her current position of Director of Membership. I would like to thank her for her help over the past 2 years. Once elected you will be notified of the new VP of Membership.

    Again, I want to thank everyone for renewing their membership on time. Please continue to do this in future as it is in the best interest of the Chapter to have everyone renew within 30 days of their renewal date.
