For over 60 years, members have relied on APICS to deliver world-class certification and career advancement resources. In recent years, the supply chain landscape has been changing at an increasingly rapid pace, fueled by technological advances, consumer demands and more.
The leaders of APICS recognized these changes as an opportunity to fulfill a market need by creating the Association for Supply Chain Management. In early 2019, APICS members will become ASCM members, reflecting this change in landscape.
ASCM will continue to provide the industry-leading APICS certifications you’ve come to trust, combined with expanded offerings—new products, new partnerships, new information about the latest trends in the industry—designed to elevate your supply chain career.
As an ASCM member, you’ll still have access to industry-leading APICS education and local chapter networking opportunities. Our world-class certifications, APICS CPIM, CSCP, and CLTD, will remain under the APICS brand as part of ASCM’s learning and development offerings.
In addition, APICS Chapters and Partners will continue to serve ASCM members and certification candidates with local networking opportunities and the in-person training necessary to enhance their careers and earn their APICS certifications.
Are you an APICS member? Great news! You won’t need to do anything to become an ASCM member. In early 2019, your APICS membership will automatically transition to ASCM membership.
Expect to see more details on this transition over the next few months. Your original join and expiration date will remain the same. Renew your membership by the renewal date to continue receiving your current benefits, along with the exciting new benefits coming in 2019.
