Letter from the President

Friends and colleagues,

Welcome to Spring. The weather is finally turning and there's a new freshness in the air. This Spring we welcome new opportunities in our Supply Chain and Operations Management profession. It's an exciting, disruptive time for the profession. To help chapter members navigate their career, we are offering new certification courses locally for Certification in Logistics, Transportation, and Distribution (CLTD). We also continue to offer frequent professional development meetings with industry experts on exciting topics with very pratical, real-world application. 

Thank you for turning out in record numbers at our recent Professional Development Meetings (PDMs). Recent events at Hofstra University and UPS Headquarters were outstanding, and we thank our guest speakers for their time.

I'd like to congratulate the professors and students of the new LIM College student chapter. Thank you for taking the initiative to establish something new. And thank you to all current APICS NYC-LI student chapters for your hard work. Academic perspectives and new students entering Supply Chain are an important part of our collective growth.

Speaking of students- I'm proud to announce our chapter's first-ever student scholarship. You can read more about it in this Newsletter. We're glad to start a new way to positively impact our community. 

We're encouraged to see such a surge in involvement and interest in APICS courses, meetings, and networking in our NYC-Long Island Chapter. If you'd like to become even more involved, such as volunteering, teaching, or serving on a Board position, please contact [email protected]

We hope to see you at our next event on May 9th in Uniondale titled, "Global Supply Chain Finance, Supplier Credit, Business Lending in Domestic and International Operations."


Sudhir Sachdev, Chapter President
