Membership Update: Are Your Skills and Knowledge Relevant to Your Organization?
APICS Ottawa Chapter Closing
After thoughtful consideration, the APICS Ottawa Chapter Board of Directors regrets to inform you that it has decided that the APICS Ottawa Chapter will cease operations effective April 30, 2021.
ASCM recently rolled out a new chapter framework that gives members the option of belonging to large ASCM Chapters who offer education or smaller ASCM Forums, both of which function as hubs for local member engagement. Unfortunately, the APICS Ottawa Chapter no longer qualifies as a chapter under this new framework. Without the ability to offer APICS courses, we do not believe the organization can remain financially viable. In addition to this, we have been challenged to fill senior positions on the Board of Directors to ensure continuity and proper governance.
In closing, we would like to thank all the members who recently answered the call and indicated an interest in volunteering on the Board of Directors. Sadly, this wasn’t enough to overcome the hurdles in our path. We would also like to thank our longstanding members, past members, friends and participants who have supported us over the last 28 years. We hope you will continue to be engaged in the Ottawa supply chain community and support young professionals and newcomers in their supply chain careers. We invite you to connect with Board members on LinkedIn to stay updated on local supply chain news.
It has been a pleasure and honour to serve you and work alongside you. We wish you success in your professional endeavours. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
