President's Message

APICS has announced that they are reconfiguring the APICS modules, going from five modules to two! Currently, a candidate has to pass five exams to earn the CPIM. We offer a class for each of the modules. The new two module CPIM will consist of an expanded version BSCM (New Mega Basics) as well as a second module combining the concepts of MPR, DSP, ECO, and SMR (New Capstone). The new two-module version of CPIM should be launched sometime around July 2017. .  (more information)

Plant Tour

Newburyport Brewing

Please join us as we tour Newburyport Brewing — Massachusetts’ own exclusive keg and can craft brewery. Newburyport Brewing was co-founded in 2012 by two local Newburyport entrepreneurs, musicians, and home brewers — Chris Webb and Bill Fisher. The brewery is known for great tasting, all-natural beers. The company aims to capture the essence of Newburyport’s quaint seaside character across a line of great tasting handcrafted ales.

This is a fabulous opportunity to tour the facility, *sample some award-winning brews (two free beer samples included!), network, and nibble on pizza & salad. Plenty of free parking as well! Must be at least 21 years old, with ID required.
