President's Message

APICS North Texas Chapter (NTXAPICS) has enjoyed good success over the last several years. Good success is a result of talented leadership coupled with high values and a drive to serve the community. NTXAPICS provides our community with the opportunity to network, connect to the APICS body of knowledge, further their awareness and understanding about supply chain from a broad range of industry experts, and to prepare for certification though NTXAPICS sponsored education. Please check the NTXAPICS WEB site for educational opportunities.

 In line with the values of NTXAPICS we also give back to the wider community. The beneficiary of our charity giving this year is The Samaritan Inn located in McKinney Texas. The Samaritan Inn is a shelter for homeless families. With cold temperatures around the corner, NTXAPICS is sponsoring a blanket drive. We invite you to bring new or gently used blankets, coats or linens to the November PDM.

Additionally, through the Good Samaritans of Garland, NTXAPICS will be donating Thanksgiving meals to 26 families in need. There will be more about this event at the November PDM.

Furthermore, I am especially excited to announce that our guest speaker at the November PDM will be Milton Jones, a Supply Chain Director for General Motors Company (GM). His topic, “An inside Look at the Balancing Act of a Large Automotive Supply Chain”, is one to certainly share some valuable insight that each of us will be able to take home and apply regardless if the industry we are involved in.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you at the November PDM.


Steve McKay, NTXAPICS President
