The next APS Coordinators Seminar is scheduled for June 2 through June 6, 2008 in the Pac Rim.
It will be held in the Pacific Rim this time as the last session was held in Europe. The specific location will be announced shortly.
To date our scheduled speakers are:
Dr. Victor Vroom, John Searle Professor of Management at Yale University, who will be doing his special presentation on Decision Making and Leadership;
Dr. Robert Peterson, Professor at IMPAC University, who will be doing an intensive workshop on Six Sigma, and;
Patrick Maes, the principal behind an Organizational Development firm in Belgium.
Other speakers may be added in the future.
Please begin the process of speaking to your Coordinators about their attendance at this event. They have enough time now to plan and budget it with their companies and organizations.
Coordinators or the companies they work for are responsible for their own travel to the Seminar and their own hotel, meal and incidentel expenses. There will be a final “graduation” dinner as well as a welcome cocktail hour which will be paid for by APS. Coffee and tea during the day will be provided by APS.
All seminar costs, such as textbooks, trainers costs and so forth are absorbed by APS. The seminar itself is free for Cooridnators who have been registered as Individual Members through their companies Institutional Membership since our last event in Amsterdam in 2004. A seminar of this caliber would cost approximately $5,000 USD per person in the United States and Europe. The Coordinators must be able to communicate in English to a reasonable degree as the entire program will be presented in English. This is not necessarily fluent English, but very limited English will be a waste of their time and their companies money.
