About APICS Foundation

APICS Foundation advances supply chain and operations management and innovation through research, educational programs and workforce development. Business leaders, academia and global enterprises gain valuable insights, information and actionable data through the foundation’s unrivaled supply chain network and resources

The Foundation, previously known as the APICS Educational & Research Foundation, is part of the APICS corporate structure. 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.

Sharon Rice, APICS executive vice president of professional development and industry content, is the executive director of the APICS Foundation.
