APICS Canadian District Meeting

Fall 2017


The next meeting of the APICS Canadian District is scheduled to take place in the days leading up to the APICS International Conference in San Antonio Texas.  Planning a meeting like this allows us to coordinate with some of the key people from the APICS Chicago head office and leverage the activities of this amazing event.  Our agenda will be a bit different from previous Canadian District Meetings however we believe the experience will be second to none.  This event is only open to APICS Canadian District Chapter Presidents and members of their boards.  

The meeting will kick off with a dinner and meeting sessions on Friday evening October 13th around 8PM.  We are planning a much later start than normal as we understand travel will impact your ability to attend.  We will reconvene on Saturday morning for another segment of Canadian District content before breaking off to attend the APICS town hall meeting and the APICS Leadership Summit.
