Join us at The Manor on April 18th for important APICS updates and to hear Rita Schiano speak about improving your effectiveness in the workplace!

  • Doors open at 5:30
  • Dinner starts at 6:00-6:45
  • Chapter business 6:45-7
  • Speaker 7-8  - Rita Schiano, Effective Business Writing and Presentations

As the ASCM and APICS community continues to grow it's vital that we have a vision and clear direction at a local level.  During this meeting we will discuss where the Worcester County Chapter is currently positioned and how we want to move forward together.  Part of this includes selection of Board of Directors for FY19-20 and we will be voting on members.  See your email for more details!


The fantastic speaker for April will be Rita Schiano and she will be covering Effective Business Writing and Presentations.  If you're wondering whether this applicable to you, I can assure you the answer is YES!  We are constantly communicating with other people and the need for effectiveness is greater now more than ever before.  Although Rita may be talking more directly to communication in a business setting there will be plenty of info and insights that you can use and share in any aspect of your life.
