Now that Fall is upon us Toledo APICS is a keeping a close eye on COVID-19, and has decided to make all our classes virtual for the time being.
As I am sure everyone knows there are pros and cons to holding virtual classrooms, and we will do our best to address any problems that may arise. On top of holding all our classes online, we have decided to move all remaining classes in 2020 to 2021. It was a hard decision but with the current environment we felt it was in everyone’s best interest.
CPIM Part I begins January 9th and ends February 20th, CPIM Part 2 begins March 27th and ends July 10th, and CSCP begins August 10th and ends November 20th.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to [email protected].

BGSU Supply Chain Management Association
Bowling Green held the third board meeting of the semester and discussed spring elections, recruitment, and future presentations.
Spring elections will be held after the meeting on November 17th.
Events for November will include presentations and discussions with Honda (11/4) and Cleveland Clinic (11/17). Professional Development Meetings that were planned for 11/30 and 12/1 have been moved to next semester due to attendance.
UT APICS opened our inaugural meeting with a presentation by APICS Toledo's Danielle Long of Magna International on 10/29. Danielle discussed the impacts of this pandemic on supply chain lines and the presentation went fantastic. UT APICS recorded record attendance for the event and received fantastic feedback from our members. In particularl, this presentation was extremely insightful for our PhD seeking students that attended, as most of their research projects were in connection to the topic.
The Interim board members are meeting on 11/4 with Dr. Fred Ahrens to discuss future events and our actions going forward. We currently are in the process of planning 1-3 more events for this semester and have goals to host in-person events in the spring.
