Did you know there are two APICS Chapters in Nevada?
May 12, 2017 | NVIE
APICS is the premier professional association for supply chain management and the leading provider of research, education and certification programs that elevate supply chain excellence, innovation and resilience. The APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM), APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP), APICS Certified in Logistics, Transportation and Distribution (CLTD) and APICS Supply Chain Operations Reference Professional (SCOR-P) designations set the industry standard.
The mission of APICS: Fostering the advancement of end-to-end supply chain management through a body of knowledge, innovative research, systems, and methods to create value for customers, members, and organizations.
But why the acronym?
In 1957, 20 production control managers formed the American Production and Inventory Control Society. The organization, which later became known as APICS, has since grown to more than 45,000 members and is now a global entity with nearly 300 channel partners that connect with members in over 100 countries.
But what does this mean to me as a company or as an individual?
APICS has evolved into a strategic partner to global corporations and individuals at all career levels. APICS education programs ensure employees can be successful even when managing the largest and most complex supply chains.
APICS members are part of the largest affiliated community of any supply chain organization.
This active, engaged network is locally available to you with approximately 300 partners around the globe, in 46 countries, with members in over 100 countries.
The chapters offer continuing education and professional development meetings for their members.
How can I take advantage of this?
Nevada companies and individuals may be interested to know that there are two Nevada Chapters – a thriving APICS Southern Nevada chapter and a newly invigorated APICS Northern Sierra Chapter (watch for new announcements to come this Fall.)
