APICS Update: APICS Celebrates 60 years

  • APICS staff
September/October 2017

During APICS 2017 in San Antonio, APICS will kick off a yearlong celebration of its 60th anniversary. The festivities will culminate at APICS 2018 in Chicago — a homecoming for the Chicago-based organization. The celebration will highlight the evolution of supply chain organizations, the revolution of the profession and the transformation of global networks.

At APICS 2017, members will have the opportunity to share their favorite APICS memories in a video-recording booth or test their knowledge of APICS and supply chain trivia. The conference also will host the first event of APICS’s 12 months of giving back. Attendees can volunteer to help assemble backpacks filled with nutritious food for donation to children in need in San Antonio in partnership with Blessings in a Backpack.

APICS 60th anniversary memorabilia

Members also are invited to participate on the APICS 60th anniversary Facebook page. Nominate supply chain innovators for recognition, share stories and photos of APICS experiences, and follow content specially curated for the event. A commemorative book featuring member contributions will be published following APICS 2018.
