Greetings Supply Chain Professionals,
Are you looking for something to do during the week? Chances are you are in the same boat as the rest of us; you live by a very hectic schedule. But I know many local employers are encouraging their associates on the topic of ‘Continuing Education’. Well it just so happens, our chapter offers Professional Development Meetings.
If you are new to our chapter and do not know what a Professional Development Meeting is, it is a great way for members and partners for development, an opportunity for networking, and the sharing of best practices. A PDM can elevate the competitive advantage and continuing effectiveness of our members and their companies by effectively expanding their knowledge of best practices and providing a forum for the exchange of ideas.
Shoreline Chapter PDMs are held once each month, September through November and February through April. PDM content varies from meeting to meeting and year to year, featuring presentations and discussion by supply chain and manufacturing excellence experts. In addition, some of the PDM’s feature plant tours at some of the most cutting edge companies within our community!
This calendar year we visited local area businesses and had the privilege of gaining insights from other Supply Chain professionals from diverse industries. Recently presented and future PDM topics include:
In addition, PDMs are a great, inexpensive way to network with your peers, have a great dinner, hear a speaker on a relevant topic, and earn maintenance points against your APICS Certification! An added bonus, PDM attendance provides 1 CEU Credit towards Certification Maintenance Points for participating.
What people are saying about our PDMs?
“Great Presenter and Content, I learned a lot”, “Speaker gave us a lot to think about. Good ideas to create good business!”
