        Once again, this year it gave us great pleasure to recognize and congratulate MicroSkills as Corporate Partner of the year. Our partnership with MicroSkills continues to be an enriching and mutually rewarding one. MicroSkills is a multi-cultural, non-profit, community based organization committed to assisting the unemployed, with priority to women, racial minorities, youth and immigrants.

        The award was accepted by the MicroSkills group, led by Karen Webb, Chairperson for MicroSkills, and many of the MicroSkills team members.

        We wish MicroSkills continued success with the great work that they do.

        Our 2015 – 2016 season officially starts this September with an open house at the chapter office.

        In closing, I would like to thank all members of the APICS Toronto Chapter for their continued support of this chapter and their affirmation of support to the Supply Chain and Operations Management community.

        Warmest regards and have a great summer!
