     Reward Yourself: Get Involved
The program is an invaluable experience for the scholars …

“The experience at the conference was very beneficial; I was able to meet a lot of new
people as well as gather valuable information. I really enjoyed how the conference was
affirming that my college coursework interlinks with the APICS body of knowledge.”

                                                           - Matthew Jantzi, October 2009

“This year’s scholar program helped APICS create a wonderful and meaningful
experience. I made new friends, increased the size and the geographical reach of my
network, and I learned more about the field of operations and supply chain management.
The time I spent with APICS members was invaluable and I returned home re-invigorated
and motivated.”
                                                           – Yanick Lavoie, October 2009
