Message from the President

On behalf of the Board of Directors, welcome to the APICS Atlanta Chapter.

APICS Atlanta has been serving the Atlanta area since 1964 and is one of the largest chapters within APICS. Our chapter serves almost 700 members in the Metro Atlanta area. We are a non-profit educational organization addressing operations management and supply chain management issues, and providing professional development opportunities to our members.

As you'll find in our Vision and Mission statements, our Chapter serves our membership, area organizations, and the local market primarily through 4 pillars:

1.    Education

2.    Continuous Learning

3.    Career & Employer Services

4.    Community

The Chapter holds meetings and webinars each month from September through June. These meetings present an excellent opportunity to share & learn best practices, as well as to network with other industry professionals. Meetings rotate around the metro from host companies to entertaing venues..

Additionally, we regularly offer Education and Training, to include classes that support our CPIM, CSCP and CLTD certifications. Public classes and private, on-site offerings are both available.

Throughout each Program Year, which runs from late August to June, you'll find plant tours, special networking events, and community service opportunities. For Program FY18, our Chapter is looking to support groups, in particular:

1.    Leaders in Operations Management and SCM fields

2.    Veterans in transition & need

3.    Students studying SCM, Logistics, and Operations Management

We are always looking for energetic volunteers to help manage the chapter. If you are interested in developing leadership skills and contributing to our organization's success, ask any Board Member how you can help.

Please let me know if there is anything that we can do to help you and your company. Thank you for visiting our web site and I look forward to meeting you at some point soon.

Best regards,

Chris Barnes

Chief Volunteer, APICS Atlanta
