President's Report

Well, Easter has come and gone.  I did my part for the supply chain having ordered flowers for my Mother-in-Law and two Sisters-in-Law and driving over 1,000 miles round trip to celebratre family and friends for Easter dinner, all in 3 days.  The highlight for me was (besides no snow or ice going up to Pennsylvania) was seeing all three of my granddaughters together (ages 4, 3.5 and 2).

APICS continues to improve their customer service, and we repeat an article this month with details and the new phone numbers and emails for your reference.

EKU student chapter is official and formed.  We are working with them to set an April meeting.  In other news we have an article bleow on the EKU Analytics symposium.

We also are calling on those of you who might be motivated to support your local chapter by joining the Board of Directors.  In an article below you can see he typical cmmitments - we try very hard to make the commitments limited and reqarding.  If you can support the chapter, please let me know.

Next month we will hold our elections electronically.  Members will receive ballots via email.  We will also be circulating to members a survey to better understand what is important to our members.  Please take a few minutes to vote and to respond to the survey - this is your opportunity to have a real voice in your chapter efforts.

As I write this spring is upon us, but winter will be back (at least temperature wise) in the morning.  Please be safe and careful as you drive around to work and back.
