Growing the Future in Supply Chain Management
Tuesday, April 15
The future of Supply Chain Management rest squarely on the shoulders of today's college students. Please join the Cincinnati ISM and APICS chapters as we proudly host the April PDM with guest speakers Hannah Mueller and Brett Acuff who have agreed to be the voices of the University of Cincinnati student body and help us to benchmark the various supply chain organizations in the Cincinnati/N.Kentucky area. Most colleges have numerous programs for students to enhance their experience and prepare them for a future in their chosen careers and the University of Cincinnati is no exception. In addition to offering flexible program options students also learn through an immersion of practice and theory with a real-world curriculum, including integrated co-op and study abroad programs taught by some of the best professors in their fields.
The Cincinnati chapters of APICS and ISM are proud to have joined forces with the University of Cincinnati over the past several years offering plant tours, mentors and scholarships to students who want to make the most of their education and network with professionals from the Cincinnati area. On April 15th Hannah and Brett will give an overview of their experiences during their time at U.C.
Come join us for an exciting and informative evening at the Kingsgate Marriott. Networking and registration starts at 5:30pm, with dinner at 6:00pm and the speakers to follow.
TOUR - MATTHEW 25 MINISTRIES (3:00 pm)

Since 1991, Matthew 25 Ministries has grown from a small suitcase ministry to an international relief organization distributing 10 million pounds of products each year. In total, M25M has sent more than 125 million pounds of aid across the United States and into more than thirty-five countries worldwide.
In May, 2004, Matthew 25 Ministries purchased a 132,000 square foot facility, the Center for Humanitarian Relief. Since the purchase of this space, M25M has responded to 19 major disasters including cyclones, tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, windstorms, and droughts. In response to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Matthew 25 Ministries sent medical mission teams and shipped disaster relief products throughout the Port-au-Prince area.
Join ISM-C for a FREE tour of this disaster relief organization. See how they minimize cost as they provide urgent care, such as housing, clothing, etc. to areas primarily affected by natural disasters. The tour will begin at 3:00 pm at M25Ms headquarters, 11060 Kenwood Rd. Cincinnati OH 45242.
