APICS Northeastern Pennsylvania is officially a Platinum Status chapter as of Fall 2015 thanks to the steadfast time, energy and hard work of the chapter’s volunteer leaders and its enthusiastic membership.
Our chapter is staffed entirely by volunteers, most with full-time jobs in Northeastern Pennsylvania area.
APICS is globally recognized as a not-for-profit organization serving the manufacturing and service industries. Founded in 1957 as the American Production and Inventory Control Society, APICS has expanded its focus to include a full range of programs and materials on individual and organizational education, standards of excellence, and integrated resource management. To reflect this new direction, we are now know as APICS – The Association for Operations Management. With over 40 years of experience and more than 72,000 individual and corporate members, APICS is the premier provider of quality education in resource management.
Our chapter is one of 270 in North America that provide manufacturing and service professionals with educational and networking opportunities. Our chapter offers education classes to help individuals prepare for certification in either Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) or Integrated Resource Management (CIRM).
The approximate geographic region covered by our chapter is the area bounded in the north by the New York state line, in the east by the New Jersey state line, in the south by an area just south of Interstate 80 and in the west by Routes 487 and 220.
Our web site is dedicated to providing our members with the latest chapter news and sources of information related to the APICS body-of-knowledge. We also provide links to other web sites we think our members may find useful in their daily lives as resource management professionals.
