APICS Brandywine Valley Chapter President
I just got back from the 2009 International APICS Conference in Toronto. As usual, it was a dynamic and fulfilling experience. In addition to the many opportunities to learn, there were many more opportunities to network. I enjoyed the chance to renew friendships and meet new people that will become a welcome part of my network. Is networking important in these uncertain times? You bet, now more than ever.
In addition, it became clear to me that our Chapter is making its mark on the national level:
One final note on the International Conference: Although attendance was lower than in previous years (yes, due primarily to the economy), there were more than 500 first time attendees. This is a spectacular number! It shows the growth and interest that companies and individuals have in learning more about best practices in the supply chain.
