Whitewater Students Take on APICS Convention in Las Vegas

On October 3rd, two students, Alison Armstrong and Rhonda Davenport, arrived in Las Vegas for the annual APICS Convention. APICS conferences provide relevant and applicable education on today’s most pressing topics—including global supply chain management, operations management in a changing economy, and sales and operations planning. The conference allows individuals to improve their functional knowledge, and network with key operations and supply chain management professionals from across the globe. Alison and Rhonda were chosen to be part of the APICS scholars program, which consists of 50 students from across the United States that have demonstrated leadership.  Although the conference officially runs from Monday through Wednesday, Scholars are involved in a community project and leadership networking event on Sunday before the conference begins. 

The community project involved the scholars labeling cans of green beans that had been donated to the
Three Square organization for distribution.  As Supply Chain and Operations Management Program seniors, this project highlighted the supply chain role in procuring, inventorying, and transporting food donations to over 1300 partners to reach children, seniors, ad families in need of support.  An additional requirement of each Scholar is to produce and present a poster project related to their major.  This poster project highlights a project, research, or leadership area that the scholar is or has been involved. The students ended the conference with participating in an APICS Scholar knowledge contest, in which Rhonda placed and was awarded!
