How to Get Employer Support for Your APICS Membership

As an APICS member, the knowledge and tools you receive benefit both you AND your employer. So why not ask your employer to help support your professional development? Below are some pointers on how to approach your boss and ask for support for your APICS membership:

  1. Make a case for APICS

    Point to examples of how you or your peers have used APICS education to better perform at work. Employers know that a skilled, qualified workforce is the most important investment an organization can make. Be sure your employer knows that APICS is a critical part of making the most out of that investment.

    APICS members save on average 25 percent on educational offerings ranging from books and materials to conferences, courses, exams, and more. If your employer supports any of these professional development initiatives, you can demonstrate the value of APICS members-only savings.
