President's Message

Have you recently given some deep thought as to what really motivates you?  What is it that gets you supercharged?  Relevancy, advancement, stability, money, and impact are considered some top motivators.  Do any of these spark excitement in you?

Let’s take a closer look at each motivator.  If you are highly motivated by relevancy, then knowing that your efforts are aligned with the direction in which your industry is heading is of high importance to you.  Your internal compass keeps you on track with the latest and greatest.

Should you be one that is motivated by advancement, then you may closely follow the career ladder road map.  You will be sure to dot all of your I’s and cross all of your T’s, in preparation to moving up to the next rung.  You clearly see your path to the top.

Perhaps you are motivated by stability.  Then whatever it takes to guarantee that you continue to have a career long into the future is forefront on your mind.

We may all be motivated by money to a certain degree.  However, if you are willing to do just about anything just to make a higher salary, then this is probably your primary motivator.

If impact is your primary motivator, then knowing that your contributions make a real difference is the carrot that gives you the most satisfaction.

Regardless of what your primary motivator is, APICS is here to equip you with the tools you need to keep you motivated.  The APICS Body of Knowledge will keep you relevant, help you advance, secure a stable future, potentially earn you a higher salary, and arm you to make a greater impact.

Does making a greater impact excite you?  If so, then consider nominating yourself for a position on the NTXAPICS Board of Directors (BOD).  Or perhaps you have a friend that fits this description.  If so, then consider nominating a friend.  Elections for the new Board of Directors will be held in May, and a new BOD will be announced at the June Professional development Meeting (PDM).  Serving on the BOD is a great way to shape the future of NTXAPICS and make a true impact.


Steve McKay, President NTXAPICS
