Dr. Pam Keystone invited to speak at 2013 International APICS Conference

Lees-McRae is proud to announce Dr. Pam Keystone, who recently joined the Business Administration faculty, has been invited to present at the 2013 International APICS conference. Titled “Including Risk and Resiliency in Supply Chain Courses: Relationship to Sustainability,” her presentation discusses resilience management, education, supply chain management and sustainability.

Known for her enthusiasm and industry knowledge, Dr. Keystone has been involved with APICS, the Association for Operations Management, for more than 25 years and is Certified in Integrated Resource Management (CIRM) and is a Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP).

When she isn’t elevating her career through APICS, Dr. Keystone is making an impact on her new students with unique teaching techniques.

“I like to get the class involved by ‘flipping the class’ which entails doing the homework in class and doing reading from the book outside of the class,” said Dr. Keystone. “This allows students to ask questions about the material and get a better understanding, not only for one individual student, but for the whole class. This method increases class participation and opens everything up to a class-wide dialog.”

Dr. Keystone has been a teacher for 10 years and is excited to continue her teaching career at Lees-McRae. She endeavors to provide guidance and valuable information to students through her combination of higher education and industry experience.

APICS The Association for Operations Management is the global leader and premier source of the body of knowledge in supply chain and operations management, including production, inventory, materials management, purchasing and logistics. Since 1957, individuals and companies have relied on APICS for its superior training, internationally recognized certifications, comprehensive resources and worldwide network of accomplished industry professionals.
