MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
On behalf of the Board of Directors, welcome to the ASCM Atlanta Chapter.
The ASCM Atlanta Chapter (formerly APICS Atlanta Chapter) has been serving the Atlanta area since 1964 and is one of the largest chapters within ASCM. Our chapter servers 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 our Vision and Mission statements demonstrate, our Chapter serves our membership, area organizations, and the local market primarily through four pillars:
2. Continuous Learning
3. Career and Employer Services
4. Community Engagement
APICS Atlanta holds meetings, classes, and seminars throughout the year, specifically from September through June. These meetings present an excellent platform to share and learn best practices as well as network with other members and industry professionals. Meetings rotate throughout the metro-Atlanta area and include plant tours, networking events, and community service opportunities.
In addition, ASCM Atlanta offers comprehensive educational training courses and weekend 'boot camps' that prepare students to pass the CPIM, CSCP and CLTD certification exams. Private/on-site training sessions are also available upon request.
This year, ASCM Atlanta plans to actively support the following three key strategic groups:
1. Leaders creating job growth, while still incorporating the latest technologies within the industry
2. Veterans in career transition or in need of assistance with job placement
3. Students studying SCM, logistics, and operations management
Please let me know if there is anything that the ASCM Atlanta Chapter can do to help you and/or your company. Thank you for visiting our new website, and I look forward to meeting you soon. In the meantime, we are always seeking energetic volunteers to help manage the chapter. If you are interested in developing new leadership skills and contributing to our organization's future success, please contact any board member to learn more about the opportunities available.
