Professional Development Meetings


The Cleveland Chapter holds monthly Professional Development Meetings on the second Thursday evening of each month from September through May at the City Club of Cleveland, which is located at 850 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio 44115. Convenient garage parking is available in the APMCO parking garage immediately West of and next door to City Club building. Covered access to the building is available via a walk-way bridge on the 4th level of the garage. Please bring your parking ticket to the PDM for validation. Our meetings start at 5:30pm with networking, dinner at 6:00pm followed by the announcements and the featured speaker presentation at 6:30pm.


At each meeting a guest speaker provides insight into a current operations management topic. This becomes your opportunity to stay ahead of the competition by learning about new and emerging industry trends and how to improve operational performance. In addition, the meetings offer an opportunity to meet and network with other operations management professionals.


The chapter’s mission is to elevate the competitive advantage and continuing effectiveness of our members and their companies by effectively expanding their knowledge of best practices and providing a forum for the exchange of ideas. Our meetings and educational programs adhere to our mission statement.
