We will meet at the construction trailers just inside the fence right beside the parking lot and start the tour at 5:30 p.m.

The President's Message

I hope everyone is having a great summer! Before we took our summer break, we had some great events! In May, our tour of AGCO in Hesston was fascinating and, in April, we had a wonderful seminar by Mark Woeppel of Pinnacle Strategies on the topic of project management. 

I am equally excited about our events coming up this fall! We start out with a presentation by Don Blake who will draw from his extensive experience at Boeing and Spirit to enlighten us on the topic of "Establishing A Culture of Quality and Continuous Improvement for a ‘Greenfield’ Factory”. Then those of you that sign up for our October tour will have the opportunity to see and learn about the new Eisenhower Airport before it opens! 

I also want to be sure everyone knows that we have a new President Elect on our board. His name is Chad Molen. He holds the position of Director of Operations for Viega here in Wichita. We believe Chad is an excellent addition to our board and feel he will be a great help in our continuing efforts to improve the offerings that APICS Wichita provides.


While I don’t really want to admit how old I am, I know I am not alone. So, I wanted to mention that I recently took advantage of the life time certification status that is available for your APICS certifications when you turn 62. It as simple as sending an email and including a copy of your driver’s license! If you are at that age or beyond, be sure to contact APICS at certification@apics.org.


I hope to see everyone at our first PDM on Tuesday, September 9 and am looking forward to another great year for our APICS Wichita Chapter!
