Claremont, CA – APICS Inland Empire Chapter (APICS-IE) has announced the Fall 2018 Symposium line up of Innovation and Global Trends Experts. This fall’s symposium is focusing on: “Advancing Innovation & Navigating Global Trends”.
The event will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 8am – 11:30am at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont.
The Expert Panelists:
- Todd Boppell, the Chief Operating Officer of the National Association of Manufacturers

“Each panelist brings a unique perspective to the discussion and how they see a global economy affecting their supply chain. To hear from experts in a range of industries is essentially, super-collaboration, which would otherwise be difficult to coalesce from a single industry perspective,” said Lisa Anderson, APICS-IE Chapter Leader.
