President's Message

It’s that time of the year again when we start to reflect on all the good things we have to be thankful for. We work hard all year to provide the best we can for loved ones and perform at our highest degree of excellence professionally. Now we look forward to a break when family, friends, colleagues, and community can gather to celebrate the joys of life.

Things that I am thankful for include my faith, loving wife and children, good health, awesome career, Chevy trucks, Corvettes, and APICS. I am also very thankful for the excellent board of directors (BOD) we have at APICS North Texas Chapter (NTX), and would like to thank each and every BOD member for their hard work and valued contribution. We would not be successful without these volunteers and their personal sacrifice, dedication, and drive to make APICS NTX the best that we can be.

When it comes to being the best that we can be, APICS is here to help. Have you considered any New Year resolutions yet? Perhaps this is the year to commit to obtaining a certification to gain additional knowledge and skills that will set your resume apart from the competition. Check the APICS NTX WEB site for educational opportunities.

Our next Professional Development Meeting (PDM) is Thursday, January 8, 2015. Until then, I wish all of you peace, joy, and happiness. I look forward to seeing all of you in the New Year.


Steve McKay, President NTXAPICS
