Letter from the President

Michael Thornburg – President July 2015 to June 2017

Dear Members and Friends:

I want to thank each and every one of you for your contribution and participation in the APICS San Fernando Valley chapter (APICS-SFV). 

The APICS organization overall is continuing to evolve with recent mergers with the Supply Chain Council and SCOR benchmark system, and the American Society of Transportation and Logistics (ASTL).  APICS is increasing their focus on the global needs of businesses.

APICS SFV ended the year on a high note with the right to proudly display the APICS Platinum Logo for 2015/16.  Financially we are doing well and continue to offer education, certification and professional development.  So, where do we go from here?

My mission for APICS-SFV is to focus on exceptional value to our board, members, friends, partners and companies by providing opportunities for learning, growth and development.

The three cornerstones of our chapter are:

  1.     Developing Professionals;
  2.     Education; and
  3.     Certification.

The outstanding team that creates and produces these services for you is the APICS-SFV Board.  I am proud to be associated with such talented people, all hard workers and innovators. Behind the scenes, your APICS-SFV Board manages a business, markets and promotes events, prepares and certifies our instructor team, responsibly manages the finances and has fun doing it.  Want to join in?  It is a rewarding experience to participate with such a great team.  Please send me an email if you are interested in joining the Board.  The Wood Fired Pizza parties are a blast!

We want to hear from you. Please share your experiences with our Board.  Please offer ways we can better serve you with programs and events that give you the tools to make a difference and add value professionally and personally.
