Student Chapter President Sara Thacker attended APICS 2014 in New Orleans and came home a winner!
As a Student Chapter member, Sara and approximately 35 other students across the country were invited to attend the conference and submit a poster on a class project, research, or independent study.
On the second day of the conference, each student had five minutes to present to each of three judges on their project. Sara won the competition.
Sara's entry was based on a class project -- a content analysis of a Supply Chain Management Review Journal. Her class analyzed all of their articles, categorized them by topics, and then compared their results to how the Journal defined the topics.
