Hampton Roads APICS


Note from the President

Welcome to the 2016 - 2017 session!

On behalf of the Board of Directors, welcome to the Hampton Roads APICS Chapter.

The Hampton Roads APICS Chapter is grateful to be able to serve the greater Tidewater. We are a non-profit educational organization addressing supply chain and operations management issues, and providing professional development opportunities to our members and local student chapters.

As you'll find in our Vision and Mission statements, our Chapter serves our membership, area organizations, and the local market primarily through 4 pillars:

  1. Education
  2. Continuous Learning
  3. Career & Employer Services
  4. Community

The Chapter holds meetings and webinars each month from September through June. These meetings present an excellent opportunity to share & learn best practices, as well as to network with other industry professionals. Additionally, we regularly offer Education and Training, to include classes that support our CSCP, CPIM and the newest CTLD certifications. Public classes and private, on-site offerings are both available.

We are always looking for energetic volunteers to help manage the chapter. If you are interested in developing leadership skills and contributing to our organization's success, ask any Board Member how you can help.

Please let me know if there is anything that we can do to help you and your company. Thank you for visiting our web site and I look forward to meeting you.
