Discover Supply Chain Networking Events Each Month With Our Professional Development Meetings

Professional growth is an integral part of any supply chain and logistics career. This is why the APICS Houston Chapter hosts supply chain networking events such as our Professional Development Meetings every month, covering a variety of topics of interest for anyone involved in supply chain and logistics operations and management.

Our Professional Development Meetings offer the chance to both learn more about a specific area within the supply chain and logistics field as well as the opportunity to connect with fellow supply chain professionals. A typical meeting will include:
  • A guest speaker who will educate the crowd about an innovative topic related to Supply Chain and Operations Management
  • Networking with peers and colleagues
  • Participating in our member raffles
  • Having fun!
Professional Development Meetings usually run from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM. Occasionally, we hold a short workshop that covers a specific topic related to Supply Chain and Operations Management before the Dinner Meeting, from 5:00 PM to 5:30 PM.

Go to our Calendar of Events to see the current PDM offerings, including detailed information about pricing and dates, and register for one of our APICS events today!
