Sonja Jones in San Antonios (TX)
Over the summer, I was selected as an APICS Supply Chain Council Scholar. As a student scholar, I was invited to attend the 2017 APICS International Conference in San Antonio, Texas from October 15th-17th. APICS is the leading provider of supply chain, operations and logistics management research, publications, and education and certification programs.
My participation as a Student Scholar was a great opportunity to meet with professionals and hear about their experiences in the supply chain and logistics fields. I also spent time with the other student scholars where we talked about our programs, interests and career goals. Overall, I feel it allowed me to connect what I have learned in academia and how I can apply it in industry.
