1.What is APICS?

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.

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.

2.What is this new ASCM?

The supply chain landscape is 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 with the launch of the Association for Supply Chain Management. As the largest global nonprofit association for supply chain management, ASCM is an unbiased partner and thought leader in your journey to supply chain transformation and excellence.  APICS Vancouver is part of ASCM. https://www.ascm.org/
