Dear IAPHL Members,

I hope this letter finds you well.

Well the committee working on the new three year strategy has completed its work.  We now hope to hold an Advisory Group meeting in August.  Thanks for all of you who completed the survey sent out by our consultant group, ThinkPlace.  The results from the survey and the recommendations from the strategy committee will be shared with the members of the Advisory Group, who will then make the final decisions on the strategy going forward.

As we continue to support the PtD Indaba Conference that will be held Zambia in October of this year, please note that the abstract submission has been extended until July 15.  I, myself hope to finish and submit my abstract in the next few days.

Also, as you have seen, we selected our semi-finalists for the Ambassadorships and they have been posting on the listserv.  Please respond to any of the posts that are of interest to you.  We hope to choose the 10 finalists by the end of next week.

As always we are looking for good ideas for moderated discussions or webinars.  We now expect to have a webinar on gender and inclusion and one on eLMIS after that.  And as always, other organizations are taking advantage of our broad reach to our members to advertise their supply chain related webinars on our listserv.

Please stay safe.  All the best.

Walter Proper, IAPHL Executive Director
