How to Get Employer Support for Your ASCM Membership

As an ASCM 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 ASCM 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 ASCM is a critical part of making the most out of that investment. Utilize our template below to help build a relevant message.

  2.  Point to the bottom line                                                                          

    ASCM members save on average 25% 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 ASCM members-only savings.

  3. Be current and knowledgeable

    ASCM membership connects you to the latest industry content and research to help you do your job better—and connects your employer to research, case studies, and best practices.
  4. Be active

    Volunteer activities provide experience and skills you can’t get anywhere else. Learn leadership, strategic thinking, consensus building and more and use those skills on the job.
  5. Access convenient local and global education

    ASCM offers a variety of educational formats across the globe. Whatever your work schedule or organizational priorities, ASCM has educational offerings to help you and your organization improve productivity and achieve your goals.
  6. Join ASCM as a group

    By supporting more employees, your organization can multiply the benefits and savings of ASCM Membership. ASCM offers a wide variety of group membership and education options.
