About APICS Supply Chain Council

APICS Supply Chain Council advances supply chain and operations management and innovation through research, educational programs and workforce development.

However, it is a separate entity with 501(c)(3) nonprofit status which makes it eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions from individuals, corporations, and channel partners.

Peter Bolstorff is the executive director of the APICS Supply Chain Council.
