Professional Development Meetings

On the second Tuesday of the month, the Ventura chapter gathers to hear the current status of  chapter business, as well as APICS-related topics and trends in national and international business from the experienced professionals invited as guest speakers. In these monthly meetings, attendees also have the opportunity to network with other professionals from multiple industries.

The PDM offers a great value at $25 ($22 if you register on-line, plus reduced prices for unemployed attendees) and occasionally low cost or free plant tours are arranged at local business.

Examples of recently presented PDM topics  include:
  • Lean & Green Manufacturing - Kirk Prather
  • How to Improve Almost Any Process – George Miller
  • Tour through the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf packaging plant in Camarillo
  • Getting users ready to implement a new system - Brian Bastow

You don't need to be a member of APICS to attend. Meetings are open to all - bring your boss, your coworkers, anyone interested in the PDM topics and the networking opportunities.

Join us for our April 2018 PDM
