President's Report

Thanks for taking time to read the latest news from the DC Metro APICS Chapter, let's see what the president has to tell you.

President, Greg Hall


Hope everyone enjoyed their summer.  Can you believe Fall is here?  We have quite a year lined up with not only our training courses (such as CPIM - Certified Production and Inventory Management) but also special speakers, company tours, and profession development meetings.  Having said this, we still appreciate receiving our member’s inputs.  If you are a proud part of a company and want to show it off to an interested group of process-oriented individuals or you have a speaking topic that would be partial to our members – let us know.  Also, while our CUVA (Cumberland Valley) Operating Unit has a full Board we still have Board openings on our DC Operating Unit.  So, if you have interest, a little time, like networking, and want to be part of a great team – come talk to us.  Keep on eye on our web page and we will keep everyone updated as information becomes available.

We look forward to meeting everyone at these various events and trainings and we encourage your participation.

Get to know a Board Member

We are pleased to feature our administrator in this issue of our newsletter, Tina Young!

A little about Tina:

I have been working at Beck Manufacturing for 16 years.  I started out in order entry at our Waynesboro office. I was then was transferred to Greencastle for Inventory Control and filled in for the receptionist when she was out which turned in to my full time job a few years later when she left.

How did you get involved in APICS? 

Lacey Hoover asked if I would be interested in filling the administration role, I said, sure, I’ll try it out.  And so, here I am.

How has Apics affected your career/life? 

I had never heard of Apics before so it has definitely taught me what it is and continues to broaden my horizons on topics of supply chain as I listen and take notes for the group.

So, what do you do in your “free” time? 

I like to spend time with my family.  I have a 21 year old daughter and a 14 year old son.  I also like to work on my counted cross stitch projects.

What’s a “fun fact” that most people don’t know about you?

My sister got my family involved in the Franklin County 4-H Seeing Eye Puppy Raisers Program about 3 years ago.  We are currently raising our 3rd puppy, a German Shepherd named Dash.  Our first puppy was a German Shepherd named Clifford who was matched with a blind man who lives in Missouri.  Our second puppy was a Black Lab named Quentin who was matched with a blind man who lives in Canada.  It’s very hard to give these puppies back after raising them for about a year but it’s very rewarding when we receive that letter in the mail telling us about the person they were matched with and what their life is like now.

Any other closing thoughts?

I’m glad Lacey asked me to join the Apics board.  It’s been nice getting to know all of the other board members, doing something different and stepping out of my comfort zone. 


We appreciate Tina and her service to our board. Thank you for allowing us to learn more about you!
